My System Specs

Default Whats the difference?

Something I've been trying to get is the performance difference of voltage increases/decreases when overclocking the CPU. My (limited) basic knowledge says that "the higher the clock, the better the performance. period". I see people with clocks that identical, but the voltages are slightly different.

Say there are two identical CPUs, both clocked to 4.2Ghz. CPU A is at 1.39v, CPU B is at 1.5v. What would be the differences in said CPUs as far as performance in a gaming environment? I'm just trying to get the hang of OCing and to understand why you do what you do and dont do what you dont do.

Also, if there are any suggested articles I should read, please share. I would be most appreciative.
