    ok...im using CPU-Z to see my current CPU specs and info behind it...

    what i've noticed was that i was looking at the HT Link and im seeing it running at a steady 800 to 805MHz.

    now i was thinking, "doesn't this suppose to run at 1000MHz total?"

    also my mobo has an option to change this setting within it...

    so the question is, does changing the HT settings affect the speed of the CPU and also if i do change it, is it safe on the chip (although in the back of my mind im thinking "its not safe")
    right now my HT is set to 4X in the bios.

    this is what CPU-Z registers...

    btw, i havent made any changes to the bios since posting this or prior using CPU-Z

    Running the HT Link at x4 will not affect your CPU performance at all.
    The default is x5,which gives you the 1000MHz when you multiply your default FSB by it (Default = 200MHz).
    If you overclock your CPU then your HT Link will increase also,so it is wise to set it to x4 or even x3 so that you do not exceed the 1000MHz mark which could make it unstable.

    HT Link = (HT Multiplier) x (Bus Speed)
