upping the multiplier to fsb?

I have the QX9650. From what i have read, upping the multiplier instead of the fsb will result in lower cpu temps. But all the overccloking reviews I have read on this processor have upped the fsb instead of the multiplier. Have I read something wrong into this? Thanks gents.

  1. Why dont you try either way and see what happens
  2. Heat is heat.

    You will have less heat on the Northbridge. CPU Freq is CPU Freq.

    It's something like:

    Wattage = Voltage^2 * Frequency * Capacitance

    So... In theory FSB/Mult has no effect if the same frequency is attained. But the area around the CPU will be warmer from a higher FSB because of heat generated from the Northbridge.

    That said.. Higher FSB = More Performance.
