Very well done and comprehensive.

Do you currently use a 590GTX or 670GTX? have you upgraded to SLI yet for the 600 series?

Starcraft II and synthetic benchmarks appear to be the only applications with a palpable difference from CPU overclocking. Not sure how that translates into what percent of games will be sensitive to overclocking, but my guess MMOs would be, and any games with lots of physics and multiple units to keep track of with lots of configurations (such as Starcraft 2).

Nice runs. The witcher 2 was an oddball result. SC2 sure loved the clock though. Thanks for doing it. thumb.gif

Lol I have no idea why you would bump this tongue.gif

The 670 is my brother's GPU, I might test it again some of these days. Maybe even do a 3930K vs. 8320 comparison with that and my titan.

Nice test. Really good to see and some interesting results. The gain over 5GHZ seems non existent or not even a gain but a disadvantage. I hope I can get my 3820 at about 5,2 just for the epeen hahaha and then get it down to 4,9 for 24/7 or max memory bandwith depending on the ram capabilities.

Mad about Hardware

Really should test some MMOs or games with high intense physics built into them. Planetside 2 really benefits from clock to clock performance on the CPU, also starcraft and WOW might be a good choice too. overall good results, kinda makes me satisfied with my 4.9ghz on my 2500k right now, seeing the difference between 5ghz and 4.9ghz isn't too significant... biggrin.gif


computers, I like.
GPUS-> GT 220 -> msi twin frozr II 560 ti -> sapphire vapor x 7950 boost

Nice work! Really shocked the cpu clock speed didn't matter too much. Wonder if that is because you have a 6 core cpu?

Thanks again!
