i5 3570/k overclock and stock speed comparison?

I need some data for the performance gap for each 100mhz of overclock to a 3570k.

reason: I want to see if it's worth it spending alot for a good motherboard for an overclock of .5~1ghz.


Can you also give some data on new games, namely BF4 with the 3570K's stock and overclocked speed.


(as much as possible, please do so with the same card/setup.)


I would really appreciate a helping hand!

More about 3570 overclock stock speed comparison
  1. Well tomshardware just did a article about performance in BF4

    and that CPU benchmark shows a overclocked i5 2500K and stock i5 2500K
    the test systems is running a geforce titan though

    Higher minimum FPS is the name of the game in games like BF4 that is very intermittent in how much CPU power it uses. Max FPS will not change that much.

    I saw that, but a titan, well that's not really gonna help my research about things to buy. Maybe a 7950-7970 range / 760-770. I expect BF4 benchmark to change also because it's open beta, maybe 5-10 fps.

    The bottomline is, do I get the 3570 or 3570k just because of overclock and spend 100+- more dollars just for a what, 5-10%? That is why I am asking about % per mhz basis improvement.
