New to OCing - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok so i tried a little experiment using Dirt 2 and overclocking. I know i am not following normal conventions when it comes to over clocking but this is a gaming rig and FPS is everything. I tired the following.
Dirt 2
1920*1080
Ultra Settings
4x MSAA

Running on stock settings 3.06 at 1066
avg fps
61.6 61.7 61.7
min fps
56.0 58.8 60.0

changed just the dram frequency to 1600mhz and left everything else on auto. Stock speed 3.06

62.3 62.3 62.3 avg
60.6 60.6 60.6 min

bumped up the bclck to 143 (3.4 ghz) and set the Dram to 1453mhz running at 9-9-9-24 1n everything else on auto.

61.7 61.7 61.7
60.0 60.0 60.0

I know there might be little merit to my experiment but I now know what part of my system needs the tweaking. I just want to set the dram frequent to the advertise settings. I know the gain is not by much but in gaming land ever frame counts.

What is the bump for?

You know that overclocking will only effect a game by a very small margin, over clocking your GPU will make a much bigger impact

If you are benching the machine then you will want to go for a good OC somewhere in the 4Ghz range.

With the cooler you have and the games you are playing @ 1080 I wouldn't worry about it, I would set RAM to 1600 and set the CPU to whatever you are ok with and temps are fine at and play some games.

Bump to bump my thread up to the first page.
The turbo mode is awesome.
I set my frequency to the 1600mhz and the timings to 8-8-8-24 2n according to corsair techs specs for my ram. left the dram voltages at auto so it automatically set it to 1.654 with out turning the led on the mobo from green to yellow. I ran the bench mark on 9-9-9-24 1n is there much of a difference? Now looking at an ssd. thinking about the x25v or m from intel to round out my system.
