Will overclocking really improve my FSX performence?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I just got enough money to buy myself a new motherboard (P67). I currently have a H67 (which doesnt support OC.). I have intel i7 2600K at 3.4ghz, AMD Radeon 6870, and 4BG ram. Right now if i use the pmdg 737 at paris charles de gaulle airport along with paris VFR scenery i will get 19-25 FPS and with and other plane around 25-30. So im thinking if i buy my new motherboard i will be able to overclock to 4.2 or 4.3ghz. Will this really improve my FPS? Because i plan on getting the pmdg 777 and that is going to be a HUGE FPS hog. I just dont want to waste my money on something that wont work. So if any of you can tell me if it will work that would be great. And also if you recomend some safe overclocking speeds that would be great! Thanks guys!

Simply - yes it will. FSX is CPU bound so the faster the better. 4.2 should be a breeze with that CPU with the proper cooling solution. So you have the start of a decent system - now you look at video cards, memory, drives, etc to get the best balance.
