So really what you are both saying is that its worth it if its your hobby and it interests you but performance wise there isnt much to be gained?

In my opinion, the performance gains are most noticeable in benchmarks, but for where I think you're coming from:

Was the performance gain from the auto-overclock noticeable to you? Did you find that improved the performance of the apps you use? Take it from there.

When I am playing a game or just fiddling with files and such, I can't tell the difference when my CPU is at it's stock setting or running at 4.8ghz, I honestly can't tell the difference other than looking at the numbers in a sensor program. It just isn't that noticeable to make the difference worth all of the time spent tweaking and stability testing. The only thing I ever saw the presence of money and time well spent was to water cool my cpu and gpu. The 25% temp drop alone was a godsend for the hot climate my computer is in.

just a heads up for people. it seems microcenter has started to clearance out their Z68 boards.
I went on their website and found a bunch of Z68 boards listed at openbox/clearance pricing.

Went to my local one yesterday and found a P8Z68-Deluxe/Gen3 for $139.96 with a $40.00 rebate.
http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0378090

Popped the box open to check it, everything looked brand new, all accessories sealed, etc.
Checked the board itself, the socketcap wasn't even removed.
So all they did was convert it to openbox/clearance from new!

out the door after tax for $150, get the rebate back and it'll be $110.

Not bad for a board that retailed a few months back over $250.

They also had a Maximus IV-Z for $95 bucks, but it was board only, nothing else.

Wow.  That's almost better than your avatar!  hehe

 

Thank you for the heads up, azianai!

Thanks for all the replys. I hit auto overclock almost straight away after building the system so I couldnt say how it performs as stock. I think for now I will leave it as is until I get a better cooler as I have the freezer 7 pro with dodgy speed readings.

On another subject. I have a graphics card installed so should I have render standy on or off in the bios?
Thanks again guys:)

Can you put it back to stock, see how it feels for a few hours or a few days, and then go back for comparison?

I'm not sure.  My personal choice would be Off.  Then that might show whether or not it's needed.

Hi, Erper!

 

Are you using an Offset Voltage?

 

If so, then the usual solution is to disable CPU C3 Report and CPU C6 Report.
