i5 750 Overclocked to 3.6 Ghz bottleneck? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
i5-750 is still a solid CPU, been running mine at 4GHz for 2 years now. smile.gif

I wouldn't upgrade your processor if it's only going to be to Sandy Bridge because the difference will be very small. Wait for Ivy Bridge if you can.

In regards to your CPU, it's still very good! OC that baby to 4 GHz (or higher) if you can. I have a 2500K also, but I upgraded from a Phenom II X4, so my gains were much more noticeable than what you're going to see if you choose to move to the 2500K. Again, wait for Ivy Bridge if at all possible.

Cheers!

Lol! What other applications might they be then!?! If you want to upgrade then just upgrade. It's pointless but since when has any hobby been rational! Enjoy your new build.

Only on one core? Standard turbo boost for even my 760 is only 2.93ghz for all four cores. (You only get 1 bin on 2-4 cores, and 4 bins on 1 core) So, no, it's actually a pretty huge overclock coming from 2.66ghz (2.8 turbo) to 3.6ghz. It's almost 30%.

(Consider that most people OC'd Phenoms from say, 3.4 - 4.0 ghz and that's roughly a 20% overclock)

OP: I haven't ran into an instance of CPU bottleneck with my ~3.55ghz i5 760 with 2 460s, and I'm (slightly) certain they need more CPU power than your single 570.

Your GPU is -definitely- the bottleneck, unless you're playing at like 800 x 600 res. OC your GPU if you want more frames per second.

I thought overclocking the i5-750 from stock 2.66Ghz to 3.66Ghz was a decently large overclock, isn't that roughly a 33% overclock, or there abouts?
