Overclocking an E8400


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm wondering if overclocking an E8400 from 3.6GHZ to 3.8-4.2GHZ will let me see an increase in the rendering times of Sony Vegas and Source Recorder. I record at 120fps and even up to 1500fps for slow motion clips, so even a few seconds takes a while to record with this chip. Quad core isn't an option; I game a LOT, this is only a secondary thing. Would I see a great increase in performance or would the increase be laughable?

you will see a small performance gain, few more fps rendered. so say you render a movie and it takes an hour. now it will take 54 minutes.

a new quad core will give you very noticeable gains as encoding and rendering can have all cores working at the same time.
