Student Research Project - 2600K 5Ghz+

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I'm new to this forum and in fact only made an account to share the research that I did on the effect of overclocking and performance and increase in temps.

I was set a high school assignment investigate a scientific problem in three weeks, the student research project. I decided to see the real benefits and disadvantages of overclocking.

I would just like some feedback and if I did/said anything wrong. I have attached the full report, please enjoy wink.gif .

Feel free to ask any questions that you aren't unsure about.

    Excellent work!  I was curious as to the relationship between clock speed vs. temperature and power consumption when overclocking, and your report was very informative. thumb.gif
  Now, to mention a few little things that I saw as I read it: (Click to show)
    Page 4: In the "Computer requirements" section, I would change "(a higher amount of heat dissipation will mean a higher clock speed)" to something more accurate, like "(a higher amount of heat dissipation will allow for a higher clock speed)".
    Page 5: A space should be added in front of every "GHz," so "0.2 GHz."
    Page 5: In the CPU speed table, the "Auto" for 3.6 GHz has some spaces/tabs in front of it, making it not like the others.
    Page 8: In the "Clock Speed vs Core Voltage" chart, the second chart line is named "Load Core Temperature" instead of "Load Core Voltage"
    Page 8: In the "Clock Speed vs Power Consumption" chart, the third chart line is named "Load Temperature" instead of "Load Power Consumption"
    Page 11: The "Clock Speed vs Render Speed" chart should be renamed to "Clock Speed vs Render Time"

Thanks for tips, I'll be sure to change it for my final report.
