What does it help when running it at a higher speed ,I had mine at 3x running at 795mhz and I turned it up to 4x and it is running at 1060mhz everthing is stable at 1060mhz,but I do not understand what it actually does ,I have done google it and read all kinds of articles ,but does it help your internet run faster or what benifits do you get by running it faster then you would running it at a lower frequency.

Check out the posts over at www.extremeoverclocking.com, there is plenty on that there. From what I understand, you really don't want it over 1000, however, mine is set on Auto and Everest shows it at 1080. I haven't had any problems regarding that. I think you are okay, but I wouldn't push it any higher.

When I first got my EPoX nFORCE3 ultra board almost a year ago, I asked around at some other forums and a bunch of people told me that you can turn your HTT down to 1x and the performance difference between, say, 250 and 1000 is about 1-2%.

HT speeds only come into play when you're moving a lot of data between the CPU and peripherals.

In "normal" usage, I don't see any difference between 800 and 1000MHz.
