My System Specs

Default

Why do we overclock at all? So we can get more performance out of a cheaper part. So we can do things faster. And so we can brag about it.

Really, if you are keeping the parts for an extended period like 2 years or more, then run it where you're more comfortable. But if you are like me, you max your OC, and run it until something newer or better comes along (usually 6 months to a year for me) then you sell it. Although I'm still running the same X58 Classified / i7 920 combo for about 18 months now, but I've had 4 GPU's in that time frame.

As for heat control, if you are really concerned about it go water cooling. It works.
