What exactly is QuickPath Interconnect (QPI)? Tags: Chipsets Overclocking QPI CPUs Last response: September 24, 2010 7:40 PM in Overclocking Share Slipperss September 24, 2010 6:53:14 PM I'm currently overclocking my CPU, I'm a overclocker newb and have only touched the BLCK, Voltage and Multiplier. This QPI makes me wonder, its 3775mhz atm, at auto. It says i can OC it to about 11GB. What would be increased and what does QPI do?
