Props to Digital Foundry for finally nipping this one in the bud. Seems though the sweet spot for DDR4 and gaming is 3000MHz and the best results are when you overclock your CPU alongside using faster memory.

I posted 8 Graphs, unless your workplace is blocking them they are all there.

You did, but they're screen caps of games, and if someone is at work, well that's a dead giveaway. Spreadsheets are so much more "business like." Reminds me I need a boss key.

Great read and glad to finally see real tangible benefits in gaming from memory OC (excluding on board since faster ram has always had gains there).

Surprised and slightly disappointed not having Fallout 4 on the list due to how well it takes to the Cache+MEM overclock. Otherwise great review! Informative and well delivered.

~AU$290 CPU.. cheap? G3258 is what is called cheap, not this.

Same thing applies for older systems ? For example on a Z77 platform, going from 1866 to 2400mhz, will the increase be similar?

8700k @ 5Ghz, 1.33v // Asus Strix Z370-E Wifi // G-Skill Trident RGB 16GB 3200mhz // Asus GTX1080 STRIX
Samsung 500Gb 860Evo // Seasonic Focus+ Platinum 550W // Be Quiet! Dark Rock 4 // Meshify C + 3 additional phanteks 140mm
