System Builder Marathon: Overclocking


iTunes gets a huge 43% performance boost from overclocking the high-end system, but with an entire movie sound track encoding in only a minute and a half at stock speed it would require quite a few songs for a typical user to notice

Lame encoder got an even bigger performance boost, with a full 45% gain from our 45% overclocked processor.


TMPGEnc gets an average 30% boost from our 45% CPU overclock. We've noticed before that the program likes fast memory and look forward to using nVidia's new DDR3-supporting 790i in future SLI system reviews.

Overclocking benefits CloneDVD by 33%.
