Overclocking i5 4690K

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I was wondering if I would get a noticeable performance increase if I overclocked my CPU (i5 4690K) to around 3.9Ghz? My current GPU is a GTX 970

Doesn't that CPU already have a boost (turbo) frequency of 3.9Ghz? I think you'd have to push above 4 to see any meaningful impact if that is the case.

Psyrus is correct the chip turbos to 3.9Ghz out of the box (unless you have disabled this?).

If you overclocked the chip to 4.4Ghz or higher you would see an improvement in FPS for sure, between 5-10fps.
