|i am thinking about getting a core i7 processor. i know that if i do, i will want to overclock it. |
so, my question is: does what speed the bclock runs at make a difference?
i guess another way to say it is: is the bclock a chip on the mobo?
if all multipliers were unlocked, and everything was running at the same frequency, with a higher multiplier and a lower bclck, would i still get the same performance?
i was just wondering, because it seems like it would be much simpler to set the bclck to something like 300mhz, then reduce the multipliers (QPI, CPU, RAM...), so i would have better control with a 920. (since the multiplier wont go past 20) as long as the bclck isnt a chip, that sounds reasonable to me...
i know that if it was a chip, it would have serious heat issues running at 300mhz when it is supposed to run at 133.
to me, this sounds like a great idea. i couldnt find anything on it on google. (dont let that stop you though) thought i would post about it here, because the people here would probably know this.
