OCing : advantages ?

Recommended Posts

Guest Dominique

After buying off the shelves seven computers I'm gonna build the next one around a Canterwood. In choosing the MB, I wonder if OCing brings a real advantage to FS2K2. I mean the OCer crowd seems to have fun reaching performance figures in certain techie tests for the CPU, the RAM frequenciy, the FSB and so on. But what is the big picture for a FS user, all in all ? I understand this is a pretty naive question but better look silly than be ignorant :-) Dominique

The real picture is equal to whatever performance gains you experience minus the headaches you run into with instability. If you can increase your total throughput by 20+%, as I am able to do, then that means if my system is inclined to drop down from FPS lock of 25 to 18 in a given situation, with 25% overclocking I may see it only drop to 22-23 in that same situation. 20% is significant for sure. My machine actually will run FS at 3154 but there is some instability without supplemental cooling.There is certainly an element of just plain trying to get the most perf for the sheer fun of it. I bought a 2.53GHz P4 chip, and lo and behold it runs at 3002MHz in stable fashion. I'll take it :()Noel
