Of course you will. Bump it up, this is Overclock.net not the Dell forums.

ya there is a difference when encoding but overall i didnt see the need to leave mine at 3.4. I run 3.0 @ 1.21v 24/7 and g skill ram at 1000mhz.

I will say that after i switched to NCQ (ahci if your mobo supports it) load times of large programs dropped a lot and multi tasking improved

From some other site in reference to OCing from CMH

i overclocked to 3.2 and saw minimal real world performance increases. i did see a bump in a 3dmark06 score from 10k to 12.5k though from stock.

Sorry to be asking a n00b question here, but what is NCQ or ahci? Thanks!!

Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) is a hardware mechanism that allows software to communicate with Serial ATA (SATA) devices (such as host bus adapters) that are designed to offer features not offered by Parallel ATA (PATA) controllers, such as hot-plugging and native command queuing. The specification details a system memory structure for computer hardware vendors in order to transfer data between system memory and the device.

Native Command Queuing (NCQ) is a technology designed to increase performance of SATA hard disks under certain situations by allowing the individual hard disk to internally optimize the order in which received read and write commands are executed. This can reduce the amount of unnecessary drive head movement, resulting in increased performance (and slightly decreased wear of the drive) for workloads where multiple simultaneous read/write requests are outstanding, most often occurring in server-type applications. However, the current (as of 2004) technology actually slows down HD access in certain applications, like games and sequential reads & writes, because of the added latency induced by NCQ logic.

woohoo, go wikipedia

in english, connects hard disk to motherboard better than...the other way i have forgotten.

i have read that and i do agree... although the newer motherboards (P5E x38 is what i have) the benchmark tests with achi are some of the fastest controllers out right now. i will see if i can find it, basically using NCQ for requesting many files (not benchmark reads) is just a little slower than a raptor drive
