CPU Northbridge should affect L3 speeds."CPU/NB"
It's responsible for L2 cache speed as well. You speed up the CPU drasticly by oc'ing the CPU/NB from 2400 up to 2800 or even if you have a good chip up to 3GHz.
Not to be confused with HTT (=FSB) or "HT LINK" which does not really do anything at all.
CPU NB: CPU NorthBridge (should not be confused with NorthBridge chipset, such as the AMD 990FX chipset) – part of the CPU that has its own clock domain and voltage plane. CPU NB clock frequency determines the Memory controller and L3 cache speed. CPU NB has a notable impact on overall system performance.
