There is decent room to the left and right of the socket but underneath the socket by the 3 lugs are a 3 large capacitors. Bus Speed Options – MHz. The graphics industry moves faster than the CPU industry at the moment and it’s all down to games. Games are often the usual culprits since they are the main drivers of hardware innovation these days. However performance is excellent when you get it tweaked to the best of its ability.
