Overclocking Marathon Day 3 - A Budget Build

Performance Analysis

And now, the performance analysis taking into account all of the scoring:

The overclock looks tremendously successful, but we fear this wouldn't remain the case at resolutions above 1600x1200. In this respect our budget system has an advantage over the other systems in this marathon.

You can't argue with a 75% overclock. Applications like CPU and memory speed, and it shows.

The synthetic benchmarks are more conservative than our application benchmarks and are more in line with the game results.
