960, 990x overclocking- bclk vs multi.

So I currently have a 960 at stock and was thinking about getting a 990x(at a killer price) to get a cooler, easier overclock.

My question is, is there a benefit to using a higher bclk vs higher multi?

I know a higher bclk ups uncore, memory, and qpi but, is there any advantage to having a higher uncore and qpi in terms of performance that makes it worth the higher voltage and temps?

Or should I just focus on cpu clock only using lower bclk and higher multi?

  1. Just focus on the multi.

    Your vcore will increase as you increase the multi.
