For those of you a bit lost in the way of Nehalem overclocking, you're certainly not alone. The new architecture does away with the old but easily understood FSB in favour of a much more advanced arrangement that involves several multipliers and frequencies for the Bclock, QuickPath Interconnect (or QPI) and Uncore as well as memory dividers and it can be somewhat daunting to know what's going on with them all and in which situations they are influenced by each other.
For this reason, a Robert Hallock of Icrontic comes to the rescue with the Nehalem Overclocking Calculator; a god send for many trying to get their head around it all.
Armed with the new QuickPath Interconnect, the Core i7 has a whole suite of multipliers and frequencies that make overclocking more complicated than ever. But at Icrontic, you should know we like to make technology easy. That's why we're proud to both announce and release NehalemCalc v1.0 to help enthusiasts keep track of this intricate numbers game.
Should you be so lucky as to have Core i7 coming your way, get yourself prepped up with this little tool and you should be seeing some nice overclocking results in no time.
