Which Component Benefits Most From Over Clocking?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum but I couldn't really figure out where to put it.

ok question. I'm trying to decide which component to overclock first. CPU, RAM, or NB. So which components will increase system perormance the most?

CPU: 1100T
RAM: 1333 MHz 8 GBs DDR3 (4 x 2 GBs)
NB: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 (890 GX Chipset)

Thanks for any help!

NB>CPU>>>>RAM.

With RAM overclocking you will barely notice any results in games, but tightening timings can have a small effect.

Yeah, it's a bit of a shame that tweaking the RAM barely has any effect on performance, but the performance gain from OCing the Northbridge is amazeing!
