Ahh right on, I'm still playing at a measly 1080p. What a peasant I am.

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.
