Windows 7: Wrong Memory speed

29 Dec 2009   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have a question about overclocking the cpu, I hope it is ok to post it in this thread.

I was reading on how to overclock my cpu on this website. My question is, if I JUST want to overclock the core clock, do I HAVE to start overclocking the northbridge? Or is that just an extra boost?
