View Full Version : Linkboost?
01-09-07, 08:01 AM
I know what it is and what it does? But does it really increase my performance? I have noticed that with it on my system is automatically overvolted, (the mcp, spp etc) . This increases heat and what not. So what should I do? Am i gonna lose any fps by switching it off. I would prefer it off as my 3.4ghz cpu creates heat and would like my mcp and spp not to add to this heat. But performance is also important...?

Hmm. Am I putting the question wrong?
To simplify it, I would just like to know (judging by my specs below) if I should have linkboost on or not.

Linkboost ups your PCI-E Frequency, they say it affects performance, but who knows. I have LinkBoost on and it set my bus frequency @ 125Mhz. *shrug* Doesn't seem to affect stability.

Thanks guys. I'll just leave it for now then.
EDIT. Ah screw it , switched it off. I want my mcp to generate less heat and if it's true and linkboost doesn't increase fps whats the point?
It gives you more PCIe bandwidth, but the bus is not exactly saturated.

I turned it off and had no difference in performance.
It's crap, turn it off, especially if you over clock and haven't locked your SPP<>MCP @ 200. If you have it on and haven't locked SPP<>MCP and overclock you'll be in for a world of hurt.
