Do the following settings help get you more FPS in games?

Core Current Limit: Max
Long Duration Power Limit: Max
Long Duration Maintained: Auto
Short Duration Power Limit: Max
Primary Plane Current Limit: Max

No FPS increase but it will definitely increase power consumption.

If you want more FPS overclock your GPU. If you want more performance from your CPU overclock it.

Not that i know of. The long and short power duration settings are for the cpu. Like when you oc it won't throttle back down when you hit the max power. Set it at high and it won't throttle down fom whatever to 1.6. Hard to explain tho.

No.

Overclock CPU = better minimal fps.
Overclock GPU = better max fps and average fps.

Can you try to? I would like to know more about these specific settings. I have Turbo Boost and all of the other power savings options disabled. I do not care what so ever about saving power.

I have my settings maxed out because i have a 4.5 oc on my 2500k. It won't help with the fps only give you a higher power availability. I only maxed the long and short power duration settings and left the others alone. The oc will be the 1 to help with min fps tho.

I get that OC'ing the CPU will help with the amount of minimum FPS you get. But I want to know specifically about those settings. Sorry about being so confusing.

From what I understand, it is like if your cpu is at stock settings ( 3.3 for 2500k) and when it turbos to 3.7 it uses around 98 watts while under full load. The short and long duration settings is to let it's power be raised up ( to a higher watts maximum) so it doesn't get throttled back down to a lower clock. Short is for short stints and long is for long periods of time. Hope that helps a little. It is hard to explain.
