As the title states, I am confused with multipliers. My rig seems to run smoother at 8x500 than 9.5x420. What is the main pros and cons to it? Looking at this, did i waste money buying an E8500 with 9.5 multi opposed to an E8400 with a 9 multi when either can run at 8x!? lol someone enlighten me, thanks in advance!
