F.E.A.R. game with maximum physics and graphics settings runs fine even at 3.0GHz CPU speed, and further overclocking doesn’t improve the results in any way. However, no performance gain in the Faces of War 2 is quite surprising, because as we have already discussed in our DFI LanParty UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G Mainboard Review the CPU speed seems to have some influence on the results.
However, these two games are the only ones where results do not depend on the processor overclocking. In all other cases the difference is sometimes very noticeable. Any applications using CPU’s computational power, such as rendering in CINEMA 4D represented by Cinebench test or 1GB vob-fiel conversion into a 700MB avi-file in Auto Gordian Knot utility using XviD codec will certainly take advantage of better overclocking results.
