Min CPU overclock for SLI 780 config

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Anyone happen to know the minimum required CPU overclock I should be running if attempting to do SLI GTX 780's. Right now I'm on a 4770k OC'd to 4.5ghz. I figured that is plenty but can't hurt to ask.

I think you would be fine even at stock clocks, so run whatever oc you'd like.

FWIW, I ran my OC'd 670s on my 3770k for about a month after resetting everything thinking it was OC'd to 4.4 like I normaly run. Re-did my CPU and RAM oc's and couldn't tell much of a difference(in games, I gave up on benchmarks after the new wore off)
WOO HOO!

Depends on the game. Most games are not cpu bound so it won't make much difference. On the other hand, BF4 multiplayer is heavily cpu bound, so I would use as high an overclock as you are comfortable with, provided voltages and temps are reasonable. Your 4.5Ghz OC seems ideal, and is also what I use on my 4770k. But there really is no minimum.

Sweet thanks for the replies, looks like I'm good at 4.5ghz then. Appreciate the quick follow ups.
