I was looking over the OriginPC website when I noticed:

Quote:
Overclocked Intel Core i7 3930K 4.5GHz - 5.2GHz LGA 2011 Hex-Core Processor (12MB L3 Cache)


I'm assuming the first value refers to the base clock. How do they raise the base clock so high if the maximum BCLK for X79 is ~107?

Using the multiplier.

Doesn't the multiplier only affect the turbo clock?

Nop, it affects the base clock ( not sure if it affects turbo clock too, but it does affect the base clock ).

BCLK frequency * Multiplier = Base clock

If so how is the turbo clock calculated?

I guess turbo boost has its own settings, tho I'm not sure so you better not rely on what I'm saying now.
