Overclockable CPUs, GPUs memory and now what?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

We have overclockable CPUs, GPUs memory and hell, even displays. Has anyone thought what overclocking the chipset might yield? Faster storage? Better PCIe speeds? Or am I smoking too much weed right now? Tell me your thoughts.

we used to do chipset overclocking back in the day, its mostly obsolete now though and it mostly causes instability because the parts dont expect the data buss to run at more than a certain speed


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

@Bananasplit_00 Will increasing the speed of the data bus which connects components give more performance? Something like overclocking the Infinity Fabric in AMD chips?

if all the parts could handle it it could give a slight performance increase as there would be less latency.

If we would be nitpicking, you can overclocking only things with clock speeds. Tuning and tweaking are to be used with everything else.

over volt rgb is too easy, not worth mentioning

 

we need to overclock PC CASE!!

@LogicalDrm I mean something like the PCIe bus and other data buses going to the chipset.

Still no clock speed on those AFAIK.

I thought that the PCIe bus had a clock speed like 100Mhz. When I tried to overclock my old system today using Clockgen, there was an option to overclock the PCIe bus. The default was 100 MHz. Strange.

So it seems.

I mean, it could be theoretically possible to overclock the controllers on your SSD's and try and get your HDDs to spin faster than default, but is it worth it in the long run? Probably not

Well, using values that have been validated to work 99.99% of time saves a lot of time and often can be too costly to try to improve them and yields performance which is not worth the work

TLDR
Factory SSD OC

Intel decided against it due to warranty concerns over user-manipulated/created issues.


Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz
