What is the biggest reason why people OC? I would imagine most of us have beast ass rigs so what is the point? Just to say we got dem gigahertz?

Maybe you shouldn't be assuming too many things.

I'm sure you just learned that lesson already considering resolutions, like you just figured out, but still.

Sometimes you might also want to overclock in situations where it is your CPU holding back performance to a greater extent than any other part of your build.
