In skyrim try not to exceed 1.5gb or vram, these cards really do not like to go near the specified 2gb of vram during gaming (something to do with the last 512mb vram not being the same bandwidth, someone else might know better)

but other than that any kind of oc on this card will give you an FPS boost no worries thumb.gif

what mobo do you have.? by upping the BLK you can give her a little boost.
I have an i3-3220 and it often beats AMD quad and hex cores in gaming and in a few games even the FX-8 is taken down.

I think you need a Z series board, I'm not sure if the H will allow you to do so.?
if it does then go for it..

I would never advise using the BCLK on any Ivy/Sandy board, unless you are on SB-E....

You will need P67/Z68/Z77 for overclocks.

WTH, why.? headscratch.gif
especially since he has a non-K chip...

that makes NO sense.

edit:
and what do you know about SB-E.?
(nothing..)

and then you end up saying he needs a P or Z mobo but yet you do not advise..
