CPU + Mobo

In Guru Of 3D forums an OP wrote that AMD CPU's can benefit from a high CPUNB/HT clock.
I have a mild O/C on my 965BE and it's good, but I'd like to see if anybody agrees with the OP and then tell me how to go about it.
(A lot of this is over my head.)

  1. Hi.

    Higher NB is better for higher RAM (1600MHz+) while higher HT is only useful if you are running multi-gpu rig.
  2. Thanks for the reply.
    My RAM is Corsair XMS3 at 1600. I have watercooled 8800GTX's in SLI.
    If this is adequate, caould you please tell me how to do it?

  3. Are you running your RAM at rated speed and specs? Or it's downgraded to 1333MHz

    I'm running it at 1600 and the numbers are 9, 9, 9, 24, 41. 2T.
    NB @ 2400
    HT @ 2400

    Set your HT at 2000MHz and try to rise the NB a little more.

    Not good! That causes black screens and no-loads!

    I put the Ht and NB back to 2400 each and things are good with the 965 running smooth and cool at 3.84Gh. :)
