    Hey guys,

    I've been overclocking my computer for the past year, and i have found what i believe is a very stable overclock i don't really belive in overvolting so i didn't overvolt anything.
    I am going to attach a picture of all my, system temperatures and volts and clocks and i just wanted some more oppions on how good this overclock really is and if its even worth it, thanks guys.:)
    By the way i saw that crjdriver made a thread on overclocking so it would be nice to also get his input on this.

    OC is fine if you are into it, but it can be bad and it DOES shorten the systems life. I will occassionally OC a system for a week or two, and then drop it back to stock. Benchmarks might say its X or Y much better, but I never notice a difference anymore. Not since you could OC a PIII to P4 speeds have I felt the need.

    Hi,
    Yeah i do notice it in games because i use a resolution of 2560x1024 (22.3inch monitor and a 17inch monitor) So there is some extra computer strain over me just running one monitor. i get about the same performance in 1680x1050 stock and at 2560x1024 OC, about 5-12% better with one monitor.
    Thanks for the advice by the way.

    By the way i can see that you wouldn't notice much of a difference overclocked or not if your running a x1300.. (checked your system specs)

    12% improvement on a 12% OC sounds high... but good if it does what you need/ want!

    I don't really game much, almost not at all anymore. I encode, burn, render and serve from that machine more then game... and compile I guess. CPU and RAM matter much more, HD a bit and GFX next to none other then for the DWM overhead in Vista/ 7 Server 2008 R2.

    Oh i see,
    I got a 11653 3dmark 06 score with stock and a 13623 overclocked but as you said i couldn't care less either because its just a benchmark and i do more with my computer than run benchmarks.
    By the way what is your oppinion on Corel Windvd 2010? I just got it and it has HD enhancement and Upscaling, and i noticed my graphics card heats up when i use it to about 48C after a 2hr movie, Seems normal?
