Benefit past 4.5 GHz?


I have the 3570k Processor at 4.2 ghz with a Corsair H100. I was just wondering if there is any benefit to go higher than 4.5 ghz.. Because I've had it tuned at 4.5 before, with 100% stabability, and could go higher. But was just wondering if there is any benefit to do that..

Thanks guys!

    Depends on what you do.

    Most games don't really care too much about the CPU speed as long as it is fast enough not to slow down the graphics card. For games that do benefit from a faster CPU like Skyrim, then it depends on how may frame rates you are getting. The extra 300MHz is not going to be very dramatic.

    A bit dated, but the following graphic does show Skyrim benefiting from a faster CPU.

    However, if you are using CPU intensive programs like video encoding, then that extra 300MHz can help reduce the time it takes to encode videos.
