    Default Performance increase in overclocking?

    Hey all, I've been stewing on this for a while and thought I'd ask you all what you've seen. How much gaming performance increase is there in going from say 3.3 ghz to 4ghz or 4.5 ghz? In gaming specifically, not desktop programs.. Thanks guys. -AW

    Hi,

    I'll bite

    It would all depend on the games you have or going to get.
    Newer games getting more CPU intensive than before.

    It would also come down to the Vid card or cards you have or plan to get.
    From what I've researched and games I have and play going to say 3.8 to 4.2 pretty much
    have the software covered depending on your video power.

    And don't forget vid card overclockability.

    JMHO.

    Others I'm sure will chime in.

    Well, you should see an improvement in performance, but too many other factors affect gaming. Like ^ says, a lot will depend on your video card and how much you over clock it

    You won't get 4.5 but 4-4.2Ghz depending on cooling. 10-15% would be my guess.

    Could anyone get their hands on some comparisons? Say, BF3 @ 3ghz, 4ghz, 4.5ghz, 5ghz?
