FX 8300 OC info - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Back in 2012 i used to have one Intel C2D E8400 (Wolfdale @ 3.6Ghz) with SLI GTX260 216 SP. In several modern games the CPU was holding back the system a lot.
The two cores where always pegged at 100% in the games and after the R.I.G overhaul (FX-8350) the gaming performace increase a lot. In some cases it doubled the fps.

For sure your very old X3 is bottlenecking the system in modern games, and you will see a good improvement in performance in modern games.

Good Luck !

Yeah I'm kinda of hoping the 6870 still has some life left. Otherwise I will have to drop another 100$ on a GPU.
