    Proper Default NB and HT link speed

    Just built a new Asus Sabertooth 990fx R2 system with a FX
    -6300 and am playing with tuning. It seems like the Asus defaults NB to 2000, HT 2600 at 1333 mem, then both to 2000 at 1600 mem, although when I manually adjust to accommodate 1886 mem both NB and HT to 2200.

    Its been awhile, but I though stock HT for a fx-6300 was 2600? Aside from overclocking (which I am not yet ready) should I be manually running the NB and HT speed up at 2600 for stock settings?

    Thanks

    NB and HT should both be stock 2600 yes. Your issue is most likely fresh cmos load.

    Once you are in bios set the option to bios defaults, reboot then, set RAM to XMP and everything to auto, it should default it to 2600

    Tried that, and it stays at 2200. Interesting.

    Never mind my mistake, I thought I had mine both @ 2600. My NB is also @ 2200. Strange cause with previous AMD cpus if HT was faster then NB system would not post.
