    All DDR2 boards are am2+, how he's got the higher speed must be specific to his board

    I think my boards actually AM2...

    On a good AM3 board that would be hard to achieve at 24 stable.

    to be fair when i tried to O/C my HT link it just flicked between about 3000+ and 200 really quickly in cpu-z, so his reading may be an error, but i have a feeling its to do with him using DDR2 ram

    he could have problems with that board, would explain his batman AA frame rate if the readings are all weird, his settings might be too...

    Aye everything gets buried within a few days worth of posting, the 200th page of posts was only on April the 23rd, now its 310 pages LOL nevermind that the 100th page was only this year! January.

    I thought like the better the motherboard and chipset the higher the northbridge and HT link clocked.
    Seems like AM2 is HT2.0 and AM2+ is HT3.0.

    Yea the Clubhouse used to go through patches of weeks/months with no posts. Now with the regulars here, it's keeping the thread alive nicely. Shame we're such a forgetful bunch :laugh:

    My mobo tops out at 2800MHz NB, but that's no doubt my IMC. S'why I'm looking at a 1090t next.
    I should be trying for 1333 C6 really at the mo with that limitation on my NB

    overclocking the nb was just to eliminate the bottleneck that is prevalent with a couple of 470s using a tired tech cpu,the secondary was only seeing like 60-70% usage with stock settings.

    I couldnt oc the ram much or justify pumping more money into ddr2 when ddr3 is quicker as standard and much cheaper!incidentally i could get cas 5 at 450/900 but it seemed to perform worse?!?a couple of benches i run at the time seemed to deny my suspicion though
    geekbenches went up a bit but it felt slightly sluggish
    I assume i was on the edge of BSODS or something,i really don't know but it felt safer at cas 6

    the latency issue of ddr3 i am hoping to overcome with slightly tighter timings and of course the decreased latency that comes with nb OCcing

    thanks for the education tatty!its hard to get a real run down on whats what without asking dumb questions,i am glad that i can learn from you guys!

    last idiot question (for today) is ddr3 less of a strain on the IMC than ddr2?

    i should hunt down crazyeyesreaper for some more education when the ram and mobo arrives i think

    Have a look at his previous posts, there'll be some interesting bits in there somewhere. He seems to always be teaching people the same thing over and over again - probably why he's a "wall of text" man. I would be if I was teaching the same shizzle all day.

    He's a good guy, a credit to this site; he's an OC'er/gamer so he's always helping people with their gaming rigs. Think he does crunching too. You'll find him in the gaming/OC'ing forums.

    That's probably because there's a lot of people arguing or asking the same questions every day :p Think of him like FreedomEclipse - he won't take sh*t and he's the first person to speak out, but he's a good guy.

    He's nothing like freedom, i like freedom. He's easy to have banter with and doesn't act like he knows it all either which is something of a quality i hate in people. I just avoid people like that, not worth my time really.

    I don't want to force an issue or anything but just try to avoid judgement until you've spoken to him or had a run in with him yourself. You never know, the people you've seen him arguing with might be people he's had long standing disputes with.

    But, that's your opinion and decision and I respect that :toast:
