I enjoy the Classified cards simply for looks and cooling, I have never OC'd a GPU and probably never will, just doesn't seem worth it to me.
Some build computers to game on, others like to see how high clocks can go & bench, some just like building computers & putting hardware together. All different aspects of the same hobby, doing something you enjoy.
