[i5 4670k] what performance increases did you get @ gaming (stock vs overclock) ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i'm very curious guys ^^

Is it worth it to overclock this baby or leave it @ stock?


& if so.. what is a nice overclock which isn't extreme?

Depends on the game. A lot of games are only demanding on the GPU so it usually doesn't matter how fast your CPU is.

On the other hand, there are some games that are demanding on the CPU, usually MMOs and RTSs, and randomly some other games like Skyrim. With those games you will probably see the difference.

As for a casual overclock... I would say around 4.0 is easy to reach. 4.5 is when you start to go into extreme(tho some will say 4.5 is casual as well.).

Theres a lot of reviews which compared different speeds of CPUs, and apart from a few select CPU-bound games, increasing the speed past stock really didnt give all that much gain FPS. I'd say if youre not interested in e-peen, just go to 4Ghz and call it a day. If you like overkill and want to just be able to say you have, by all means shoot for 4.5-4.8Ghz (be prepared to have hefty cooling at hand, or be willing to delid) But don't expect much of a performance increase in games smile.gif

I can't really comment on performance increase as I didn't take a baseline. just did a stability test and then cranked it. (saw "K" and said to self why are u still at stock biggrin.gif)

as for casual OC I had no problems setting 1.2 vcore and 46x till I got to stability testing. Just backed it off to 45x and am satisfied for my first OC.
