    Do you get more performance from having a high multi and low BCLK/FSB or is it better to have a lower multi and a high BCLK/FSB

    I'd guess with a higher FSB/BCLK. for example... which would perform better... a 533FSB core 2 duo at 3.0ghz, or a 1066FSB core 2 duo at 3.0ghz? higher FSB/BCLK gives the cpu higher bandwidth to the rest of the system. (i think)

    Higher bclck. You need to find the highest stable bclck by reducing your multiplier down to a super low number. THEN you start upping the multiplier to find the highest stable frequency. (adding appropriate voltage of course).

    Its how high you get your nb frequency helps the mem bandwith and qpi link helps

    but this is going to need qpi volts to get it stable
