Hi

I am a noob when it comes to OCing, but am trying to learn. When OCing a CPU, whats better, high fsb, low multiplier, or low fsb, high multiplier?

I have managed to get my CPU up to 3.33ghz from 2.66ghz, but the temp has gone from 32C to 38C when just on net ect. Is this a big jump in temp at these levels? I have watercooling also.

Thanks

you want them to be even, or as close to as they are now in terms of what you have stock.

For instance. Im running a 2.4GHz chip with PC3200 ( DDR400 ) ram. I want to overclock my processor....but keep my ram's power.

Im not at 2.7GHz and DDR 416.....

To do this, I have my multiplier at 12x and my FSB @ 226. Keep in mind every chip, and mother board will react differently and have different options. Hell...even RAM can cause an issue.

Best of luck chum

Just my findings......
