Is it worth it to OC my Ryzen 5 2600?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

I built my first pc so that I can play Destiny 2.

I got a Ryzen 5 2600 CPU and I overclocked it to 4.0 GHz.


Is there a way for me to check if there is indeed a noticeable difference when I play with the OC on?

As of now, I can't accurately tell if the FPS is higher with the OC on.

 

Or since I couldn't tell the difference, I should just go back with the stock settings?

well, if you have to check, you didn't notice it.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Yeah. I mean because the FPS changes from angle to angle and map to map. So I don't know how to check for average FPS in Destiny 2. Is there a tool that can calculate that?

Try something like cinebench to see if there is an improvement in scores.

You need something that actually records framerate. Cinebench will tell you that the CPU is indeed faster, but that doesn't necessarily relate to more FPS in game.

 

What GPU do you have? I know Radeon software for and GPUs will track framerate for you and you could play with OC on and off then compare. I'm not sure what options there are for Nvidia, but I'm sure there is something.

 

What are your temps with your OC? High temps are the only reason to be nervous about running an OC all the time.
