So let me get this straight, we buy a Ferrari & tune it to run like a mini?

Jack, almost correct;

We buy a Ferrari motor, put it in a Mini which is not capable of doing 230mph because of aero dynamic constraints and poor brakes, but we will can accellerate from 0 to 60 in 1.8 seconds wich is even twice faster than the original Ferrari chassis.

This is seriously how it works and how e.g. XTweaks (in XXHighEnd settings) these days co-operate with these settings.

FYI, investigate the Stealth PC. These days that goes out with preferably an 28 core processor while tuned down to 500MHz. Say that its accelleration speed is obtained by using 28 cylinders instead of 4.

Btw in the UK there are far too many Mini's by now. It must be the best selling car ever.

The analogy is all so fascinating! The resulting music presentation is always the last word. I tried putting CPU back to its default 3200mhz (not even overclocking) and soon I lost interest in following the music. I found myself restless and music became shrieky and irritable. Now my CPU runs at its lowest allowed 800mhz.

Peter,
Any thoughts on memory speed? Currently mine are on MoBo's default 1333. Would it be ok to put in the memory's native speed and its latency numbers? My thought is that with CPU running at 800mhz in my case, some long classical tracks especially MQA ones (30 min. and up) are taking very long time to load. Would memory speed even help without a penalty at SQ?

Best,
Zheng
