Hi there Tom's Hardware Community! My name is Griffin, I am thirteen years old and at school I have decided to do a science fair project relating to technology. I came up with this idea, using my PC (Which is overclocking ready) I will use benchmark tests and overclocking utilities to test how clock rates of my cpu and gpu effect performance. I will under clock both items, leave them at default clock, and overclock them and run benchmarks with each. Anyway, I was wondering, how do you reccomend I do this? I have an i7-4770k with a H100i and a GTX Titan with sufficient air cooling. What benchmarks should I use? How long? What overclocking utilities? Any help would be appreciated! If you neeed any more info please ASK! :)

you should seriously reconsider overclocking since you are new to it...That's a pretty good hardware you've got and it would have cost you a lot of money..So please reconsider

I appreciate the consideration, but it is to late to back down. I have more knowledge than you may think, but since it is a science fair project it is important I do it perfectly.
