Hi all.

I have just started OC,ing, and am addicted to it. But I am afraid of burning stuff out, so just tweaked a bit. Here is my rig. I am currently running it in auto freq select mode for the GPU and CPU. My cpu is clocking out at 4.885GHz when there is a demand. It idles at 1.5GHz. I dont know where my rig is, in comparison to other peoples. It runs Skyrim at 57-60fps pretty well. 3DMark scores and more shown here at my blog here: http://mybigrig.blogspot.com/

are you running skyrim on max settings? Whats your res?

 

I do indeed run max settings in Skyrim. I hope you play Skyrim. I am prety sure all my textures are 1024 or better. I have a lot of game/modding time with Skyrim. I am currently running it on my 23" Acer G235H monitor, 60Hz, 1920 x 1080 res. Here is a pic of my parts, 4/14/12 as I recall. My first computer, not including the "Commodore's", was a Mac "Lisa". Paid $1200, and it had a 6" x 6" square black and white screen. This rig is my 4th home built.

I'd say that if you're getting 4.88Ghz with everything on Auto - then you've got a good chip and good motherboard going there.

I play a little. The reason i ask is because i have this feeling you could be pulling in more frames.

cpu scaling (you got the better chip and higher clock at a lower res)

This is just speculation. Maybe im not taking into account other factors.
