I don't OC nearly as much as I *could* for gaming ... however, I do usually max my cards out for quick benching runs.

I don't feel the need because I don't actually experience any tangible gameplay difference between my safe, modest, cool, and quiet 24/7 OC (700c/870m/1.0V), and having my cards slammed up to their max volts and clocks (840/900/1.1V ... which runs WAAAAAY hotter and louder, but 'feels' no different).

Of course, it helps that even at my 24/7 overclock, these cards chew up and spit out everything I throw at them, so ...

Why bother and risk it is kinda my attitude about gaming with my cards at their max possible OC's. Just so Afterburner will show me a slightly higher FPS number when I look up at it?

That seems a little silly to me, but to each their own thumb.gif

I don't have SLI but would OC both to my default 16% on Core / Shader %5 Memory 900 / 1800 / 2075 stock voltage 1.0880mV. Even if unneeded.

I over clock my toaster, coffee maker and blender too. tongue.gif

Of course free performance is always nice, but just note that after you become addicted it is no longer free with waterblocks and phase change coolers tongue.gif

Yeah it is fun...

PC Performance enthusiasts mostly do it for fun... it's so relaxing...
It's like, an excuse to open the computer case to install a new cooling system, or a new water pump, or a new H-70, new Noctua d-14 ...

The most fun of all is definitelly the fact we need to install cooling components, run tests, and notice the absurd better performance...

I am an AMD guy, I have been overclocking all my AMD's like CRAZY, memory timming, and all, thanks to this forum, and all the kind people who help each other.

Now with my first intel setup, I cant wait for my new PSU to arrive,...

I got a new MB too .. I cant wait to try to 5ghz this thing, and make my GPU smoke.

I overclock everything that has a clock speed.

PC, cellphone, tablet, you name it. I have even overclocked my Dreamcast a few years ago.
