so what kind of performance gains can I expect from overclocking my i5-3570k?
Granted, Im running on integrated HD 4000 right now. With infestation on Low and using 1024x768 resolution (now), I get 30-35 fps on average. lowest Ive seen is 25, highest is like 60 but thats in lobby, in-game the highest will be like 50 fps. My game's framerate doesnt seem to drop much as the game progresses either. I have 8gm 1866 ram, and use a ram-disk as my page file, temp, and cache. wish the game was a little smaller, I would just throw the whole game into my RAM-disk to get SSD-like performance.
Also, Im using a stock cooler ATM, so thats why I havent overclocked it yet. I get very low temps as is though so thats why Im considering OC'ing before an aftermarket cooler. I think the highest the game has ever made it was just under 60 C. I normally sit at 22 C idle, and it normally goes up to like 40 C in-game depending how long Ive been playing.
So with that being said what kind of gains in framerate have you experienced from OC'ing and does anyone with similar specs give me an idea of what I should expect, possibly even per Ghz or .5 Ghz?
