My System Specs

Default BCLK Overclocking

I've been reading the Masterlair.com guide to OC the new i3/ i5/ i7 and they say to play with the BLCK but ppl have been saying on Sandy's not to touch BLCK is this true ?

cause raising the BLCK will raise the speed of everything same for the QPI which makes ( much faster less crowded highways )

Thanks

All you need to do with SB processors is change the multiplier and perhaps some voltage.

103-104 will be the best you can get. 105+ is really rare. If you're already at 5,0 ghz, which is REALLY good, why bother?
