  1. it would help if you overclocked by taking the FSB up instead of using the multiplier. faster FSB will cinrease overall performance... TONS of info out there.

    Yes, it'd be worth it! Even just up to 3.8ghz.

    you'd be even better to upgrade the colling unit and go to 4.2ghz. OR, spend $100 on an FX8320
  2. What is FSB and how do you increase it
