Is the I5 3570K worth overclocking?

Hey guys,

I'm getting an I5 3570k for christmas at the moment i'm using a evga 680 sc, If i bought an corsair h80 and over clocked the I5 3570K to around 4ghz would I se an increase in performance for gaming and overall performance increase?

More about 3570k worth overclocking
  1. Depends on the game, and most likely not by much, maybe MAYBE 1-4 extra fps
  2. Depends on if the game is CPU bound. You will see an increase performance in Skyrim.

    Overall performance? Depends on what you are doing. Surfing the net? No. Watching video? No. Doing CPU intensive tasks like video encoding, 3D rendering, photoshop... yes.
