anyways I am learning ALOT. I leanred what bus is :O learned about FSB or bus speed, I also learned tht my i5 3550 runs a rather low Bus speed and a high multiplier... would it be possible to increase the bus speed? 
Even under 50% load the buss speed remained around 100 mhz with my multiplier around 37, I read that lower fsb means less voltage which is a good thing, but still isn't less fsb mean less bandwith? Either way I might end up buying a after market air cooler and some fans and seeing if I can increase that front bus speed any... while maybing using a lower multipler... either way I'd like to over lock my i5 3550 just to see if I can! [good knowledge ya know] 
You'll be lucky to get an extra 15mhz fsb speed. Pick up a cheap AMD or old intel core duo if you want some cheap fsb overclocking fun.

Bah stupid Ivy Bridge, I just read an article about the locked speeds... although well they do perform really well...

 

Non the less it was fun to learn, and I'm going to continue learning. Does Sandy Bridge OC well? thinking of an i7 for mah next build

Yeah, sb ocs nicely. My i5 2500k does 5.3ghz on air if I really push it.

speaking of over clocking..... my 7970 is running at 1125mhz and mem at 1575 (no voltage increase stable 67 c max temp) but my stupid fx6300 was bottlenecking on 64 man servers so I finally got around to disabling all the power saving stuff and OCing it in bios, only had an hour or so to play around with it but it's running at 4.35ghz with a 21.5 multiplier.  Max temp of 46... No voltage increase yet (I'll get to it) but I am some what new to OCing and how much of a difference will it make if I bump it up to 4.5ghz will I avoid getting the annoying 36-45 fps drops on certain parts of 64 man maps (talking about bf3) ?

I don't play BF3, so no idea. Try it and see?

Nice what's ur fsb n multipliers

eww 67c isn't bad... my 6950m has maxed around 70c... any hotter than that and I'd be well not to happy... planing a new build and might use a i7 2600 and a 7970...hoping to get a custom waterblock but I'll run air at first... does the i7 2600 oc well [and man I wish I went sandy i5 over my silly little ivy i5, mines not even that great an i5 ivy at that -.-]

 

and I would think yea man, the faster it is the less it should lag. I'm not an expert on the subjet yet though, and those power saving stuffs are stupid... i always drop em. Damn power savers gave me hard drive issues when I built my rig [dmn thing would power dwn my internals and exeternals]

Good learning experience and a great place to play with new toys.

Just make sure to leave your conscience at home before you go to work each day. The prices for repairs and the treatment that some customers received, especially the elderly just got a little too much for me...

yeah considering I went from an old athlon x3 with an am2 mobo and 6850 to a new am3+ mobo, fx6300 and 7970, I wish I spent a little bit more for an i5 since I needed a new mobo anyways... I guess I'm a little bit of an AMD fanboy and when they release their new line of CPUs later this year I'll probably get one if they're better than the fx series(assuming it's on am3+)

Unchanged BCLK(no point with the new intel chips). 53x multi. LLC high, 1.536Vcore(not recommended), QPI 1.2V, CPU IO 1.15V, VCCSA 1.1V, DRAM 1.65V. CPU PLL 1.82V

Spread Spectrum off, C1E off, CPUID limit off, Overspeed protection off, power technology off.

I used to run my 480 so oced on the stock cooler, it would get to 104C on load, I lowered it the other day. wink.gif

YEAPERS, I used to work for an ANTI GEEK SQUAD priced pc repair store lol. And Concious... I worked in resturants... I watched plenty of stupid ppl pay WAY to much for bad food so I'm pretty good at contributing to the screwing of peoples wallets... they are ignorant and don't care y should I and yea I've done a little reaserach tonight and I've learned a good bit, fun actually. So think this is the right feild for me! [did I mention the pay is good... 13 hour at 19 ain't bad imo! $3 more than a GOOD line cook gets ;3] Well in the South East US [we don't make much in the south, but are cost of living is low so it wrks out]

I see that you already know the game, and have had experience in it.

 

Good luck to you then in getting that GS position!

It'll be a fun ride! biggrin.gif

Yea sadly, I'm pretty sure I'll get it. Just need to know my basics then WOW him with my [Over clocked pc intel ;3]

 

Besides I have a nice conversation a long time ago with one of his senior guys... i had issues with video tearing... I went with 5 techs before I got one that knew what the differance between a problem and a FREAKING PANDEMIC, lol all the low level guys asked me the same basic idiotic questions. then I finally got the guy who asked me what I was running in my system. He after deceding it wasn't a drive issues he just told me [AMD generally tears more then Intel, I built 2 systems same physical specs... the AMD rig tears more than the Intel even at teh same FPS] I'll still buy a AMD HD 7970 since it's cheap and I'm broke but, the point is... ONE of the techs had a nice informed conversation with me... he might remember me [I ofc won't mention that I EVER asked them for help] Since I really just needed an intellgiant person to bounce technical idea's off of 

 

So yea it should be fun. Plus It'll help me jump start a buisness selling custom pc's to ppl. Which I'll do out of my buddys Small town buisness still. Either way it should b a win win for me, so long as I can dance the courparte monkey dance >.> 

 

Any tips for a kid entering Couprate America q.q [and don't say run lol]

Geek squad?  Toys?

 

You're going to see a whole lot of Pentium 4 systems, and those are definitely not toys.  Dusty, dirty, ancient machines with burnt PSUs and worn out HDDs.  That or you'll get software based issues from MAC users, either way its a PITA!

 

I know this because I service PCs in the community, they have processors that were unfamiliar to me (wtf is an AMD Revision V2 CPU confused.gif, I have yet to find a wiki on it).

 

I hate dirty PCs and Macbooks, servicing them makes things worse. I don't know, you might feel differently biggrin.gif

 

Who knows, you may wind up servicing an Ubuntu system, as of last year I refuse to install any Windows-based system for people with technical difficulties.  Takes hours just to locate or even install ancient drivers on a W7 OS.

 

Ubuntu is easy to navigate through applications, and is virtually impossible to brick without the proper permissions.

Well sadly I know Pentium 4's.... I serviced, cleaned, reconfigured, optimized and fixed A LOT of pentium 4's. I should add that on my PC experince. LOTS of Pentium 4 reconditioning. Gawd Drivers for those things are a pain to and everyone complains that they are slow... OF COURSE ur running Windows Explore 7... so I'm aware of how bad they can b and are

 

Thanks for sharing that as well, and sadly I'm not Mac Friendly although my job would be running some prelimary tests so the Technicians can service them. I'm still a Customer Service person... just with some pc knowledge! Non the less College will b starting soon and I'll b able to work my way up hopefully! 

 

Interview is tommorow and I just learned something new! I wondered why the many i series cpu's seemed to have 100mhz fsb with a really high multiplier... I still don't entirely know why but the Xeon W3570  is a processor with insanely HIGH fbs and it runs pretty hot I'd imagine... I saw it on a workstation rig... which makes me ask... why isn't there a middle of the road kinda of product. I can understand if your running BIG programs like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign all at the same time [I used to do a little graphic design and the Macs we had sucked, couldn;t handle the work loads] So I can understand why you'd need ALL that Bus speed and bandwith on a work station that would be running a few dozen BIG programs and loading some equally HUGE video or audio files...

 

but why isn't there a middle of the road processor... for some one who might do some Graphic Designing [which I do from time to time] and some one who does gaming, something that doesn't need as much Bus Speed n power... I will say my i5 handles The ADobes farily well but I never work with anything to massive... I'm going to read up on what the Multiplier is! 

 

dIn addition, I have revised my understanding of north and south bridge, the N bridge is the memory hub, where the Ram and Gpu are copnnected to the Cpu, where as the south bridge is where your periphals are, such as your IDE connections yes?
