    Usually, u only can see a performance difference when u OC CPU, RAM and GPU. U could see a little difference in some benchmark programs but maybe not in games.
  2. If you can unlock your cores and make them stable, that would be a better increase for some games that utilize multiple cores, such as GTA IV.

    I do know that OCing my chip helps with the framerates in GTA IV, but in other games, I don't see any difference. It just depends on how the game was programmed to operate and utilize the CPU.
