What exactly is QuickPath Interconnect (QPI)?

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?

  1. I actually went there before making this thread, I understood nothing (being Danish) and was looking for a short and direct answer, which is why i came here. But thanks anyway :3
  2. QPI is essentially the data path between the CPU and the chipset. I am not sure you will gain much (others can comment otherwise) by adjusting beyond the current auto setting.

    Held og lykke!
