HT determines the speed of transfer for mobo devices.
By the time your CPU ever happens to "wear" out the CPU will be obsolete.
Also when chips are made some chips can run higher than others. Usually your AMD triple core chips are actually quad core chips, but one core doesn't meet specifications so they make it a triple core, some dual cores are quad core chips but two cores don't meet specifications. Black edition chips are the better chips found through speed binning. Yes they are the same hardware made on the same wafers, however some are better than others. Two chips can be manufactured the same exact way but have two different speeds. There is a difference between the chips.
OCing isn't for the novice and people who do are not idiots. Go to this site here and use that line forums.anandtech.com/forumdisplay.php?f=5
Properly done OCing is fine. I don't want to OC my CPU any further because I still don't know enough about OCing to push it further and don't have the time.
Excuse me while I laugh at these gems..
"Usually your AMD triple core chips are actually quad core chips, but one core doesn't meet specifications so they make it a triple core, some dual cores are quad core chips but two cores don't meet specifications." Nice... that will be filed next to my "Martians landed at Roswell" folder.
No.... NO NO NO...
The CPU board is totally different for Triple cores and Quad Cores and of course Hex Cores.
My question was a trick question...
HT doesnt determine speed of mobo devices, its Hyperthreading which comes standard for any CPU the last couple of years. It deals with cache operations etc and multitasking. It doesn't increase when OC'd.
So excuse me for not believing you
Lesson learned - no talk to guy who ran a PC shop, knows stuffs pertaining to CPU's and try and bluff your way through things
Yeah gee I wonder why people would ask for proof. Go figure
I remember you claimed mass effect 2 had a special mission but could never prove it.
I could throw out a bunch of numbers without proof also. Nice try though.
Those values and ram speeds are legit. Go look and see.
After you dismal attempt at understanding CPU's, I shan't hold my breath
LOL, okay "mr. PC shop" guy. Nice try
OR Hyper Threading which is an Intel-proprietary technology. Oh and Intel had hyperthreading in their Northwood Pentium 4 in 2002
AMD processors DO NOT have hyperthreading
We were talking about AMD chips. And yes you can change the HT when OCing an AMD chip.
Good luck with your next folder. You do realize that you can unlock the fourth core on some tri-core chips and even unlock two cores on some dual core chips? Yes you can. When chips are made, not all are up to spec during testing. Throwing out a quad core chip because one chip doesn't meet specs would be wasteful. They disable the fourth chip and make it a tri-core chip. Of course not all are designed that way, which is why I said "some" not all.
Check this out
So excuse me for not believing you, again
The only one bluffing here is you, just as you did with mass effect2
Seriously, you didn't know the difference between hyper-threading and hyper-transport? And you are an expert? And no they are not the same.
So just to clarify on the HT thing
AMD- Hyper Transport
Intel- Hyper Threading
Two different processes. You might want to study up on it.

AMD chipsets do have HT, they used to not have it, but they do have it, but...
Hypertransport is not the same as Hyperthreading, yes threading is Intel's, but AMD has a similar technology and they can't use the same name as Intel so they call it True Core Scalability (TCS) it is the same thing.
As for your link, that was HTLS something again totally different. HyperTransporting vs HT Link Speed is two different entities. Again Hypertransporting is not AMD's equivalent to Hyperthreading.
You really have no clue. Give up.
You have done a general google search and anything it took you hours to find to try and look smart has just blown up in your face.
As for the ME2 planet, I gave people the opportunity but all I got back was ridicule think I was going to help people out then, your head is just as wonky as it was back then. Amazing how people forget I was the one that showed them how to use Ruby to change the configuration of things like run speed etc.
Anyways that was the past, and the present you have shown yourself to be less knowledgeable also.
how about a 22" Full HD from Dell or LG...preferably a WLED. i'm told WLED's consume a bit less power. both look good though.
