For those of you who want a little boost to your system (or who are trying to squeeze the last bit of life out of your older system so you can play FFXIV), I came across this article today. It's pretty thorough, and I didn't see a comprehensive guide to overclocking on the forum here, so I thought I'd pass it along:

Hope it helps!

I definitely support overclocking as long as you don't do voltage tweaks. The difference between stock 3.4 and OC 4.0-4.1 is about 600 points on low settings for me. Haven't tested the benchmark on high.

I second this. Amateurs should NEVER mess with voltages until they know exactly what they're doing, and what levels are safe for your particular hardware.

Suplimental:

This thread made me curious, so I dropped my settings back to full stock JUUUUST to see what happened.

With my 1090T overclocked to 4.11, I got a 6167 absolute best on low

Stock run on low: 4848

some food for thought. .

Another advice is to look up overclocking guide specifically for you chip AND your motherboard even if you know what you are doing. While I wouldn't call myself a season veteran when it comes to OCing, but I did overclocked my share of computers. I was caught off guard a little when I OCed my i7-930 because I skipped a few generation of chips in between.
