Benefits of OC'ing

717 Views 16 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  CanadaGradeEh
Ok I have been overclocking my rig for a while now. Very conservative all together, going from 2.4-2.6 tops.

My main question is besides overclocking your video card, how much does overclocking the cpu and memory affect fps in games?

OC'ing the video card has obvious improvements (such as my card which i get an average 20 more frames from and oc.)

Still im not sure how much OC'ing the CPU and memory have on performance.

Any info?

Well the loading times will increase well, and so will boot times, and the game will run smoother, and if you have any lag in the beggining that will go away, most of it is due to the ram though, and you will see pretty much a significant amount of performance increase in everything in the game....depeneding on how much your overclocking


you ram should be fine for a decent overclock, only if your trying to push it to EXTREME limits
Whats the timings and the speed its running at
look in CPUz and post a screen shot
