Overclocking Core i7: Power Versus Performance

Benchmark Results: Games

Since Crysis depends a lot on the graphics card’s performance, it doesn’t show substantial benefits with a highly overclocked Core i7 processor. Going up to 3.66 GHz makes sense, while 4.0 GHz provides hardly any incremental benefit.

Unreal Tournament 3 scales better with increasing processor clock speed.
