These are run together, at the same time.
Thanks for the link though, I will have a look at it.

You know, find a CPU you know the max clock of, drop the multiplier, LDT and RAM divider, and see how far you can get the HTT. This is something people are becoming increasingly interested in especially with all these Opteron 144s that can hit 3GHz+ but only use up to 9x. I know all new S939 boards should be able to go higher than you would ever need, but it'd be nice to check. :)
