    Question MIVE + 2600k oc, with NO improvement in FPS

    Hello. I made an oc to my i7 2600k taking it to 4.8ghz, and when i compare the performance to the non oc CPU i have no improvement.

    Here is some info:

    Specs:

    Intel Core i7-2600K 3.4GHz
    2x EVGA GTX 580 1536mb gddr5
    Asus Maximus IV Extreme P67 B3
    Gskill 2x4gb ddr3 SNIPER 1600 (F3-12800CL7D-8GBSR)
    CoolerMaster 1200W SilentPro GOLD 80
    Noctua nh-d14
    WD Black 750Gb sata3 64mb (WD7502AAEX)

    I tried just the Unigine heaven benchmark, SUPER PI and some games. Here are the results:

    Unigine (all max) 1920*1200
    Unigine Benchmark (w/o oc): 49.7 FPS (min=11.9, max=129.6)
    Unigine Benchmark (w/ oc): 49.9 FPS (min=20.3, max=128.3)

    Super Pi:
    Super Pi 1M w/o oc 9s
    Super Pi 1M w/ oc 7s

    Crysis 2 and metro 2033 in 1920*1200 and all max, had the same FPS with and without the oc, maybe i had 2 FPS more w/ oc.

    Is this normal? I think this tell me that the 580s are the bottleneck here, but if thats the case, Why i see so many people with rigs like mine overclocking their CPUs? If i have the same results in videogame performance i prefere a non oc CPU, right?

    Would apreciate some guidance here. Thank you very much.

    PD: Sory for my english :P

    To answer your question about OC. There are some games that are more CPU intensive (Supreme Commander is one of the worst). Also people like to OC just to see if they can. It is correct that a stock CPU will generally last longer but a mild OC should not cause your chip to die noticeably faster.

    Ty for the answer xeromist. Is it recomendable to oc for some time and then go back to default, and back again to oc? Or i should stay with the oc allways?

    It does not matter if you go back and forth. You will not damage anything doing so. It will only alter the amount of work you need to do. Some people have an OC for winter when it is cold and revert to stock or a lower OC during summer when there is a chance of overheating.

    So it is entirely up to you
