How important is OCing the NB frequency? Tags: CPUs DRAM Overclocking Product Last response: April 14, 2011 9:00 PM in Overclocking Share jaylim0512 April 14, 2011 6:33:31 PM So I overclocked my AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE to 3.9 Ghz These are my current stats: CPU voltage: 1.461 V CPU/NB: 1.1 V NB Freq=2000 Mhz dram freq: 1067 mhz dram voltage: 1.5 V So my question is, would raising the NB frequency increase performance? And if I do decide to raise the NB freq, would I have to OC my dram speeds and the voltage and the voltage of the CPU/NB?
