My purpose for being on OCN is to help people learn by presenting accurate technical information and dispelling mis-information. I am aware from your previous comments that you do not take kindly to technical realities that refute your beliefs. Making the conversation personal is totally inappropriate and counter-productive to the discussion.
Your very own Far Cry 2 test data confirmed exactly what Tom's, AnandTech and X-Bit Labs independently confirmed and stated - there is no significant gains in system performance from increased frequencies above ~1333 MHz. and even less from changes in latencies in REAL world applications. No where have I suggested that people not tune their PC as you imply.
What I have explained numerous times is that tweaking the DDR3 RAM settings does NOT provide the system gains that DDR and DDR2 RAM produced because DDR3 is not saturated 100% of the time due to it's greater bandwidth and as such is not a system bottleneck at or above ~1333 MHz. for typical desktop applications.
Explaining to people that DDR3 RAM @ ~1333 MHz. is not a system bootleneck helps them understand why they see no changes in real applications with DDR3 RAM changes above ~1333 MHz. Your 50% RAM overclock from 1333 MHz. to 2000 MHz. on a FX CPU made this reality perfectly clear and I thank you for posting your FC2 test data so people could see for themselves that there is no significant gains in real applications.
BTW, you should refrain from inappropriate posts such as your flame bait above, which is clearly NOT on topic nor constructive to understanding the realities of DDR3 RAM OC'ing. You've made numerous inappropriate comments directed towards me in several threads because you are unwilling to accept the realities associated with DDR3 RAM even from your own FC2 test data. Insulting people does not change the test data nor reality and is inappropriate forum behavior.
