Now my understanding is that with an intel the northbridge is the memory controller and is directly linked with the FSB. If i increase the FSB speed from 1066 to 1200 how much is the NB affected? MY OC'n process. based on internet OC'ing of the G0 CPU's I determined that it was good idea to bump it up to 3.0ghz from 2.66ghz. This can usually be done fairly easy with not voltage changes. I also installed a Scythe Shruiken heatsink; this is a good cheap AMC for lo-profile applications. the shruiken is a pain to get in but worth it. I dropped 20degrees and with the OC its back to what Stock was. so a 12% OC and nothing major .
