I would like to know if overclocking an Intel E8200 cpu to 3.2GHz keeping FSB@ 400Mhz will damage my GeForce GTS 450 video card ?
The idea is to multiply FSB by 8 in order to reach desirable clock. I do not intend to change CPU and memories voltage.
My computer hardware is comprised by :
Intel DP35 Mobo
2x 2GBKingston PC 800MZ
Intel E 8200 @ 2.66 GHz
One GeForce GTS 450 video card
It won't, as long as you keep an eye out for the PCI-e frequency. Make sure it's manually set to 100MHz because some auto overclocking settings will also raise this too.
thanks so much for your reply, I never would have known that changing the FSB multiplier to reach 3.2 GHz could affect PCIe frequency!!
I will ensure to check PCIe frequency inside BIOS to keep on 100 MHz.
