My System Specs


Slight "hickups" might be caused by NB/FSB requiring a slight bump in voltage.

Under XP there used to be a point during the initial splash screen where you could see a slight pause / "hickup" that was noticably more pronounced if your NB was struggling with the extra strain of the OC. In that case, a slight NB V bump would often resolve the issue.

I suppose it's more of a "feeling" thing, but I find a huge difference in how fast an OC'd rig boots once the NB volts are dialed in properly.
