The ultimate OVERCLOCKED gaming pc build.

There have been many videos on LTT where they say they are building the absolute best gaming pc but they never get into the over clocking. 

There are a few guides out there on the parts needed to build the ultimate gaming pc for around $3000 but they never talk about over clocking. 

As we all know overclocking increases the performance but there are limitations and most of the time we never think about overclocking the ram. 

I was hoping that LTT might be able to make a video on building the ultimate bare bones gaming pc $3000 and then show us how it is over clocked on both the cpu and the ram. 

Hopefully someone can lay down a good guide so we can squeeze out that extra performance easily by simply following a the guide.

overclocking RAM won't really do much for games, unless you overclock your RAM on ryzen to some crazy extent.


not worth it to overclock everything. If you're spending 3000 fucking dollars I'm sure that PC is already very fast, and overclocking everything is going to make it run hotter, and it won't last as long (depends on the OC though).

I don't think I agree on your point that throwing money at a PC will make sure you have the fastest... You might get XMP enabled things but there's a lot still to be gained from there. But I agree with you that RAM doesn't make lots of difference in gaming. Still, 2% more FPS for free is not something I'd pass up on.

Nah, LTT is too busy doing reviews. That's what earns money. OC guides earn subs, which they have no lack of.

Well you could drop a line at the "Is AMD for poor people?" video thread because they asked if people are interested in overclocking/consumer advice topics.

pretty much all of the 3000 dollar ultimate gaming pcs can overclock very well since they are all high end components usually. as for overclocking there's dozens of guides for overclocking all of the place though the issue with doing a guide on a specific build is not every one understands that your components even if its the same model will overclock differently.  so its better for them to just make a seperate overclocking video
