Hi guys, im new to overclocking and have been reading guides, but have run into a problem. So from what i read overclocking the HT has minimal benefit but overclocking NB is very beneficial because it reduces ram timings and read/write times. But my problem is that my motherboard doesn't show values like it shows them in the guide. The guide speaks as if the change would be to a multiplier, but my values are large numbers such as "600, 800, 1000, 1200" etc. Are these numbers GHz? And if so, are they multiplied by something?

Im using a crosshair 3 from asus btw.

Hi.

Correct, those are MHz and is the frequency of NB. You don't need multiply this with something else.

Is it really beneficial OC you NB?

It's related with your RAM, so, you get more performance between RAM and CPU.

What about the ram freq? I try to keep it at stock so i lower multiplier as i increase the FSB so it keeps at 1600 (ddr3). It seems to crash the system once it goes over 1800.

Also if you know, is the stock HT and NB value 2000 MHz?

What CPU do you have?

Correct, you need lower the RAM multiplier to keep the RAM frequency at default when you rise the FSB.

So there is no real benefit to increasing ram frequency about stock?

The problem is get it stable, while at stock you know that works fine.
