Hey there! Just a little update for you... I played some bf4 single player tonight and got some footage running at 3.4 stock, and 4.0 oc'd. This is my first time recording benchmarking so I only got a couple sections of gameplay that line up pretty decent for comparing frame rates. Also my first time doing some video editing so putting this all together for you is kinda rewarding for me in a way, and fun!

Anyway the video isnt done yet, but its too late for me to finish tonight. But this kinda what ive discovered so far only by using ingame fps overlay recorded with shadowplay.

I5 3570k+gtx 660 Ultra @ 1680x1050
Compared to 3.4ghz, 4.0ghz oc shows an avg gain of 2-5 fps and less often gains of 5+ fps. I saw frames go as low as 27 and high as 68, but you can watch for yourself when I post the video (might need help with that haha). I can tell you honestly while playing I didnt notice a difference.

I know I dont have the greatest video card nor a very high resolution but I do with what I got lol. I generally only play online with ultra setting no antialiasing, and get considerably higher framerates (60-70) EDIT: Forgot to mention these frames are running at 4.5ghz

 

 

I am very grateful for your time and effort inserted. I did not think that you will want to prepare a video of gameplay. It was enough to write, what is the gain. I do not need proof in the form of a gameplay. However, I am very surprised and happy that a stranger to me is capable of such a sacrifice for which I thank you very much. Therefore, the performance boost to 5 fps, which is quite a lot and at the same time it is not. Therefore, I'm starting to have doubts about CPU with an unlocked multiplier. What is your personal opinion, is it worth it? You said that you do not see the difference in the game. Hmm... I am confused.

In an attempt to keep positive air pressure in this case. I have the 80s installed in my case but don't have them switched on ever because I find they make very little difference anyway. If someone has a rack of 2.5 mechanical drives they will need them as intakes then.

 

 

So the optimal use of fans in HAF XB EVO are 2x120 or 2x140mm in front and 1x120mm on rear. What in the scenario, when my rear exaust fan is with radiator of the AIO water cooler and not standalone 1x120mm fan?

 

EDIT

 

OK, I have found on Polish site lots of tested CPUs in games (1920x1080 Ultra settings):

 

Wiedźmin 2 (The Witcher 2)

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.5GHz (78,5FPS vs 92,1FPS = 13,6FPS gain)

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (78,5FPS vs 95,3FPS = 16,8FPS gain)

 

 

Civilization V

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (62,5FPS vs 74,3FPS = 11,8FPS gain)

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (62,5FPS vs 77,1FPS = 14,6FPS gain)

 

 

Assassin's Creed: Revelations

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (73,0FPS vs 88,4FPS = 15,4FPS gain)

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (73,0FPS vs 92,0FPS = 19,0FPS gain)

 

 

Battlefield 3

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (74,1FPS vs 75,2FPS = 1,1FPS gain)

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (74,1FPS vs 76,0FPS = 1,9FPS gain)

 

 

Metro 2033

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (52,6FPS vs 54,3FPS = 1,7FPS gain)

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (52,6FPS vs 54,6FPS = 2,0FPS gain)

 

 

Skyrim

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (92,0FPS vs 105,8FPS = 13,8FPS gain)

- i5 4670K 3.4GHz vs i5 4670K 4.7GHz (92,0FPS vs 109,8FPS = 17,8FPS gain)

 

 

Best regards.

All is good apart from the fan screws on the top 200mm fan but Cooler Master's ignorance is a different story

Please comment guys let me know what you think...

Niice! biggrin.gif So I was thinking, "where to put my extra 50cm RGB strip?" Well there we have it tongue.gif it is definitely going in the front wink.gif hopefully today, together with new DIY backplate smile.gif
Suggestions for new graphics? tongue.gif

Gambi - have you taken your 780 for a spin online BF4 yet?

If so do you notice any fps difference between stock clock and high OC on your 780? Or even your CPU for that matter.

Edit: Grammar.
I have smile.gif I sucked big time -_- but the game ran smooth on ultra settings ^^ what a treat.
I have only run the game with OC (4.6GHZ, 1200mhz core, 3300mhz mem). So I dont know what the difference would be..
Do you want me to test it?

You should be able to hit 4.0Ghz with a locked (non K) CPU.. so I would still go for that since you wont be OCing much further with your cooling anyways.. imo, the K is just waist of money if you are not gonna OC more.. but that will most definitely need a better cooler and a delidding..
Just my 2cents.gif

*Edit
about the tests you found.. that is a 4.7 OC wink.gif You wont get there without a costume water loop and a delidding..
about the fans, Yes, that is the optimal setup, even with a radiator.. Im using 240mm radiator with 2x120 fans in the front as intake, and 120mm radiator with 1x120fans in the rear as exhaust.
The air inside the case wont get hot enough to show any temp difference using case air vs outside air through your radiator.

How do you actually take off the two front fans? There's a metal plate in front of the so I can't get them out biggrin.gif And is it okay if I put 2x120mm and 2x80mm as intakes and only one exhaust, the 120mm fan behind the case? I took the 200mm off the case because I'm trying to make this silent as possible.

I have edited my above post and added 4.5GHz result too for i5 4670K. The max OC I would like to go is 4.2GHz with Zalman LQ315 AIO, but this configuration is for me.

 

What about Maria's new computer, which I need to order for her to the end of the next week. I think that i5 4670 without K will be the best for her, if she is not going to OC, I will order Zalman LQ310 AIO for her, because she prefer AIO water cooler over Air even cost of greater CPU and GPU, as she said to me. GTX 760 I think would be enough for her and it's not as much expensive as GTX 770 (70Euro difference). I haven't any clue, what to do with motherboard for non K i5 4670, because she will use only 1xGPU NVIDIA, only 1xHDD (so no RAID) without any SSD, no other cards like sound card etc. What chipset do you prefer for such configuration? B85, H81, GTX 760 uses PCI-E 3.0 and H81 chipset only PCI-E 2.0. So B85 is optimal chipset for her configuration? Maybe mATX will be better too?

 

EDIT

 

Is it OK to go with i5 4670 and GTX 760 with such budget motherboard like B85 or H81 (CPU and GPU will have the same performance like in H87), or should choose for her H87?

 

Best regards.

 

Sincerely

If you could find a B85 or H81 that fits your needs, I don't see a reason why it wouldn't work. Even tho I would spend the little extra money and get the H87 just because they have more features.

Yes please! biggrin.gif BF4 is more GPU intensive that CPU so oc that is where you notice the fps differences.

I'm contemplating OC my Gigabyte Windforce 7950, so need to know what kind of differences am OC will bring..

After a 3 week break from BF4 whilst I played Tera and Rust I comeback and I suck a lot now haha.

Is that usually the case for 4670k? Because the 3570k (mine at least) will reach 4.7 no problem with just my 120mm AIO and remain under 70c
