    I want to up my NB Freq to at least 2200, but i had a little confusion when doing so. in my mobo, there are three things, NB FID, HT width and HT link speed. both NB FID and HT link speed i can increase to 2400. I set both of them to 2400, but when i use CPUZ, my HT link speed is still 1600, where as my NB freq went to 2400 nicely. So i don't get how to up my HT link (I am assuming upping the HT link improves performance?)

    And last question, should I change my ht width? The options are auto, 4x, 8x, 16x

    Leave HT link alone as it barely plays into performance.

    wait i got a few more questions XD

    so i upped my NB freq a bit more, to 2600 since the motherboard specs said it does 2600Mhz hyper transport.

    my question is this, is this safe to go so high? in HWmonitor it shows these temps (which i think are from the mobo)

    THRM 40C
    TMPIN0 72C
    TIMPIN1 26C
    TIMPIN2 40C

    When you're touching NB Frequency you aren't doing anything with the motherboard chipset at all. You are actually overclocking the cpu's IMC.

    Also about those temps, every board's sensors are different and unsure what they are. They may even be false readings on top of that.

    Not a problem! Did that bump in NB help any?

    yes it did, made my mmo games run smoother and they re maximize faster as well. and haven't ran into any lag during web browsing either :)
