Seriously if you can gain performance for free then why not?

wasn't trying to say I didn't want free performance I was saying that my FPS gains aren't that dramatic. So should I stay here?

I think that was just our fun way of saying yes, you should stay there. Nothing wrong with those temps or volts, so no reason not to keep it and get the free performance (even if it is minor).

I think those temps/clocks/vcore ratings are all fine. Stay right there. Squeezing another 100mhz is not worth it. 4.5 is plenty thumb.gif

the difference between 4.4 and 4.5ghz is this for me 1.24 for 4.4 or 1.31 for 4.5 which I get 10c temp decrease and about (.10) less point on cinebench between the 2 here is a screen shot

+1 ... I'm with ya there. After I finally got 4.5 stable I played a ton of BF3. I noticed a 10-20 fps increase in min and a 5-10 fps increase in avg. All depends on the map, etc.

And ya .... Free performance. Seems like a no brainer. Still trying to get 4.6 and 4,7 stable. Running into heat problems thou.
