This was just a quick search, so I'm not sure if there is other information out there...

An overclocked 3570k performs less than the 3770k stock.


no s***. those benchmarks take advantage of Hyperthreading.


But OP its totally worth it.

i run my 3570k @ 4.5ghz 24/7 and its great... 5ghz for when i need more horsepower. (i got a good chip).

it speeds up all the goodness.


Most Games Dont Require a very fasdt CPU though.

Unless u plan on doing Console Emulation u wont need a heavy overclock at all :P


Damn Iam trying to get mine to 4.5, 5.0 would be amazing, not sure what I did wrong to cause so much problems



i have a very very good chip... i only need 1.2v for 4.5 lol.
