Question about disabling a core...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
If I were to disable a core on my 720 here, do you think it'd be able to OC higher, and would that kind of an OC be advantageous over having a lower speed triple core in games?

Thanks,

You might get a little higher but I doubt the extra headroom would counteract the loss of an entire core. Might be beneficial in some games (if it even increases OC) but not really worth the trouble.
