I7-3770k overclocking question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm new to CPU overclocking and basically Ive OC my i7-3770k with automatic settings from OC genie II to 4.2ghz. I was wondering if I were able to manually OC it to 4.5-4.8 24/7 Stable overclock, would there be any difference in gaming, basic desktop use (surfing/watchin movies)?? So basically I'm asking is there noticeable performance difference between 4.2ghz vs 4.5-4.8ghz?

I have a MSI Z77 mobo wit g.skill (2x8) 16gb RAM 1600mhz.

If there is a difference, could you guys help me out a bit?

PS: I'm not benching.

For the most part, no. Some demanding CPU limited games might show some benefit, but normal productivity tasks won't. Rendering, encoding, that sort of thing, can show nice gains, if you do anything like that.
