Hey there currently running a 950 @ 4.0 HT / OFF. My question today is I was trying to figure out whether there was much diffrence 4.0 to 4.2 in gaming also currently running a single gpu but plan on running sli ina few motnhs specs below. Currently running BF3 around 48-60 fps. Thanks for any help!
I7 950 4.0 1.31 vcore QPI 1.35
Ram Corsair Vengeance 12gb 1603mhz 9-9-9-24
gtx 560 ti 1000mhz
700 corsair gs psu
corsair 600 t case
antec 920 khuler
The difference between 4.0ghz and 4.2ghz is negligible.
It's 5%. I'm not sure what it takes before a person can even tell the difference, but it would probably take a 20% or 30% increase, maybe even more if you aren't using a stopwatch for testing. I use 4 different computers, running at 1.6, 2.53, 3.4 and 3.8, and there isn't as much difference between them as the clock speeds would indicate.
