Honestly? not very much, the main reason why people overclock their CPU/NB is because they love benching and it shows nice scores.

But those scores do not translate in real world performance gains, at least not by much tho. Same as for RAM speeds, people think that 2400Mhz RAM is soo much faster than 1866MHz because the benchmark said so but the truth is the opposite, you trade speed over timings and at a certain point its irrelevant what speed you are running because it takes too much time for the RAM to react to a certain task.

I did test it and run my CPU at 5ghz and CPU/NB at 2570, HT at 3000 and my RAM to 2400 11-11-11-30 timings and yes i had great benchmark results and yes it was fast but it also draws more power from the wall and creates a lot more heat because you need to upper the CPU/NB volts to be stable at those speeds.

Later i went to stock 1866 8-9-9-24 timings and CPU at 4.8 and the rest at stock speeds and my system feels a lot more snappy than when i had it overclocked to the max.
In games i did not see ANY difference at all.

I am happy how it runs now and its fast enough to do anything what i want from it with decent temps and its much more quiet now because i can run in quiet mode now instead of the balanced mode i was on before. thumb.gif

yea no , it does not make as much of a difference because of ram speed, if you are pushing 2400 ram it can help 2133 or less 2400/2600 is plenty

2400 ram does make a difference, stating that it does not, is like saying there is no difference between 85 and 95 ( or what ever octane you have in your country, low/ high ) for your car, there is a difference, most people just dont understand what it is, and when they "dont see it" they tell everyone there is no performance gains in real world, which is false, as it would depend on what you do with your pc, and not a blanket statement

Would you agree that for most people between the lower latency and the higher frequencies they "cancel each other out" quoting LinusTechTips? Would this hold true for lower CPU-NB frequencies and higher CPU clocks?

like everything, it depends on what you are doing, for a normal user, there is no use going high speed ram to surf the interwebz, certain things you do ( again pointing back to the octane example ) yes there are substantial differences

This should be a very simple audio issue but it is confusing me. Maybe because I am too tired to think anymore.

I plus in headphones to the audio jacks in the back. A prompt appears on the screen. "What did you plug in?"

Headphones.

But yet sound still comes out of the speakers. I just don't know what to do right now.

Headphone jack in the front has defect, so I cannot use that.

Any clues?

Someone else will have to chime in. I've literally never used the onboard audio on the 970A-UD3 or 990FXA.

I was playing around with it, and while I did find a setting that is supposed to mute the speakers when headphones are plug in, it appears to not function as advertised. What you can do...is turn your speakers down if they have their own volume control and the headphones should work fine if you selected the connected item as "headphones" in the Realtek software.

My speakers have a headphone jack, so I don't usually use the panel in back...sorry I couldn't be more help. I swear I have defeated this problem before., but it was a long time ago with different hardware and OS.
