does northbridge affect PPD much??
has any x4 or x6 owners tried 2000mhz nb vs 2600-2800mhz? is there a big boost ?

anyone fold on amd?
Don't bump your thread that much. You're permitted one every 24 hours.Originally Posted by jp27;12026431
someone should try it... i think maybe im going back to 2000mhz nb since no difference in ppd
Overclocking the NB helps to stabilize your CPU OC. For example, if you have your CPU at 4.0ghz and your NB at 2000mhz it will most likely be unstable, but if you bump your NB up to ~2800mhz it should stabilize you CPU OC (given that all voltages/ temps are where they should be). I'm not sure exactly why this is the case, I just know that it is.Originally Posted by omega17;12031776
Are you saying a higher NB clock will help stability?
He's right, a NB OC helps with stability, but a HT OC can actually decrease stability/ performance. The HT should be kept as close to 2000mhz as possible, I think some tests have shown that performance can start to decrease if it's pushed over 2200mhz.Originally Posted by Atomfix;12031846
What on earth? lol! No! Overclocking NB help with CPU OC Stability, OC NB will improve system performance,
Overclocking the HT will decrease stability.
Take it to the AMD Forum's if you have a problem with it, I'm not going to start flameing
