Default Can Northbridge Temps slow down Ocing?

i realized my northbridge was running so hot that it literally burned my fingure, i cleaned it and put some AS5 on it but i was wondering if high temps on the North bridge can slow down my overclocking since i could only get 2.33GHz out of 2.2ghz stock?

BTW im running 533mhz on my RAM, so thats no help

The FSB is located in the NB, so temperatures will have an effect on your overclocking.

Or is it the HT Link that's located in the NB?

LoL no. The whole point of HT is that it dosent have a northbridge. The processor is connected directly to the RAM and dosent have to go through the NB to access the RAM, unlike in Intel systems. This results in much higher memory bandwidth and latency.

In AMD systems, the equivalent of the NB is the on die memory controller, which is integrated into the proceesor itself.

ahh ok...Thanks. I'm not familiar with AMD, as you can see.

Wouldn't that be higher memory bandwidth, and lower latency?

well technically heat in general will hinder you from OC'n as far. even though the heat in the NB is not the direct cause, it still does produce alot of excess heat in the case. do you have pretty good airflow?

Sorry yes it should be- I meant to put better bandwidth and latency
