    Default Question about getting the best performance OC.

    My system is very stable at 4.2 GHz with a multiplier of 24 and Bclock at 175, but I'm curious if the system would give better overall performance with a lower multiplier and higher Bclock.

    Would there be any real difference in system performance, not just small benchmark differences, or is it a wash either way?

    Higher multi and lower bclock will gennerally take a little less voltage plus memory stability is greater due to lower frequencies. You are running at 24 X 23 X is a better multi. The i7's like odd multis better. If you can keep your temps respectable, you should be able to obtain 4.3Ghz with 1.35-1.375V but use the 23 x as your multi. Disable turbo, C1E and power saving features.

    As far as performance, the lower multi and higher bclock will give a lil more performance in some cases you can achieve higher memory frequencies and NB speeds.
