PCstats Q & A - FSB or CPU? - PCstats Q & A - FSB or CPU?
Tue, June 21 2005 | 4:51PM | PermaLink Feedback?

Our enervated sixteenth Q & A of the week comes from Bert via the PCstats Feedback page . If you have a question you need answered right away, try our friendly forums for help too.

Q: I read the 2 articles regarding overclocking in the latest newsletter. They were very good in describing the basics. Actually, all your stuff is good. This probably isn't the right place to ask but.... I have been fooling around with OC-ing for a couple months or so and have a follow-up question. Generally, what is a better target to shoot for, a higher mutlipier or a higher FSB for a given total MHz? For instance, to get 2400 mhz, is it better to have: 10x240 mhz or 12x200 or 15x160? For the varied reasons that were mentioned in the article, I am not getting consistent results to answer it myself. Thanks!

A: For gaming and benchmark performance with AMD processors, FSB increases usually yield more overall performance than changing the multiplier, where changing the multiplier is even possible. Reducing the CPU multiplier is useful for other overclocking purposes as well, such as testing your memory or motherboard's overclocking headroom.
