  1. So, I'm checking around online, and on youtube, it seems that for the i5-7600k a 4.8ghz is actually better than 5ghz in terms of value per GHz. Now, I'm also seeing that most people state the vcore - or voltage - should be anywhere between 1.17v - 1.22v for a 4.8ghz load. And as far as I can tell, there's not much more to overclocking a CPU other than those two settings in the BIOS, unless you want to go extreme, which is not the case for me. Would anyone here disagree with my findings? If so, could you explain why, and potentially give an opinion about which settings I should run instead? I have yet to look for how to overclock my RAM, so that's next on my to-do list right now. But if anyone has any suggestions for how to overclock the RAM, or fix it otherwise, I'm all ears.

I've never actually overclocked anything, and although I'm sure my Bios has pre-built-in overclocking profiles, I haven't used any of the profiles either, as I'm not sure about any of the overclocking stuff. "Is your RAM definitely running dual-channel and is overclocked to its rated speed?" My RAM has not been - as far as I am aware - been overclocked, as I don't know how overclocking works. And my CPU isn't overclocked either. "So how is it performing in an actual task you do?" I hardly ever play any sort of big games like Battlefield, or other games in terms of spec requirements, so my PC performs pretty well. "Is this just for the sake of the benchmark?" It is mostly for the benchmark, yeah, I just want my pc to be at its best, basically.
  3. Hey folks. So, I've recently upgraded my system slightly with a new GPU, and a new NVMe M.2 970 PRO SSD coming later on. I've noticed - and will upgrade later on, - that my CPU is giving me much lower scores than the GPU is giving me. I realize this is because my GPU is much newer and better than that of my 7th Gen i5 CPU, so that's not something I need to be told. What I would like to know, is how I can increase the CPU scores with the current setup, either through Overclocking - if at all possible - or other methods. I've added a 3D Benchmark Test result attached to this post, as well as my current build (and total score) taken from the UserBenchmark website. UserBenchmarks: Game 105%, Desk 88%, Work 50% CPU: Intel Core i5-7600K - 84.8% GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070-Ti - 122.3% SSD: OCZ AMD Radeon R7 240GB - 99.8% HDD: Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB (2013) - 74.7% HDD: Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB (2013) - 66.8% HDD: Seagate ST8000DM0004-1ZC11G 8TB - 93.5% HDD: Seagate ST8000DM0004-1ZC11G 8TB - 95.9% HDD: Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB (2013) - 90.6% RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 3000 C15 2x8GB - 63.2% MBD: Asus MAXIMUS IX HERO I'm looking forward to any and all responses. - Frankie1920 3D Benchmark Result 2;20 pm 02.11.2019.3dmark-result
