Alright, thanx. Btw, nice case in your DP, ive got the same one.
Got it going on 4.0ghz, not much difference in gaming performance.
The games must be taking all they can from the CPU then so it's the graphics that might need an OC

a stock 2500k is overkill already for a single gtx 560 Ti tbh. you'd have no gain whatsoever if you overclock your cpu aside from a few games that are light threaded and very cpu extensive like starcraft 2, shogun 2 total war and other games that have hundreds to thousands of units on the screen

most games will not make much use of cpu power so overclocking cpu will only make a few fps difference in most games

also you should join the phantom 410 club http://www.overclock.net/t/1204530/official-phantom-410-mid-tower-owners-club

yeah, i figured that. i might OC the 560 Ti, the 2500k is quite a decent CPU aswell so i'll probably look into overclocking a little later, maybe if i get a GTX670 or something, but no rush at all.

Didn't get any difference, tested Mafia II, Sleeping Dogs and Blackops II. They run perfect as they are, just wanted to see if i could get anything out of an overclock, looks like i won't with my current GPU lol.
And thanx for the link, nice thread on the Phantom 410. smile.gif
