First I like to say I don't own a X2 yet but will be buying one this friday yay on me.

I know that both cores have to overclock seperetly. But do they run better at the same speed?

Its hard to explain. But say core 1 is set at 250 and core to is at 200 would this create a problem? Would it run better at 225/225?

I was just thinking becouse alot of time when multitasking there normaly one program that takes the more system resorces.Like a game. So if you had it at 250/200 and the game was set to ran on core 1 and all other task set to core two you see better performence?

But what if you run a program that uses both cores would 250/200 couse problems there?

you can't clock them seperately, you need to test them seperately to make sure they both run good at the same speed...

my baby runs @ 2.7 GHz :D, so both cores @ 2.7GHz that is ;)
