Hi there.

Im just wondering what benefits i'd gain from pushing my i5-3570k from 4.2ghz (current OC) to 4.4/4.5ghz.
More or less only using my PC for games and watching movies/series.

Single monitor @ 1920x1080

Games im currently playing:
Batman Arkham Asylum
Battlefield 3 with expansions
Skyrim with ~20 mods.
Borderlands 2
Black Ops 2
The Witcher 2

Games im going to play:
Crysis 3
Starcraft 2 with Heart of the Swarm
Maby The Elder Scrolls Online
GTA V
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (didnt know they were making a PC version until i read http://www.ign.com/games/metal-gear-rising-revengeance/... )
Metro: Last Night
Lost Planet 3

Not sure when all of them gets released but, not planning to upgrade my system until Nvidia releases their 800 series.

Any input is welcome : )

Probably no reason at all then why not.
I have the same usage as you and don't see any particular reason to push my 3570k past 4.3Ghz, quite simply I don't need the performance doing so will give me, so its not worth the added heat.

you wont see a big difference between a 4.2ghz OC and a 4.4/4.5Ghz OC... Actually you dont need to OC. Just enable turbo mode in the BIOS... For gaming it may not make a noticeable difference...

Thanks!
