While it can bottom out into the high teens for fps on some maps in WOT ... those average frames are very fluid with no chop. Of course this depends on your hardware as well.

Currently doing some runs @ 4.2 at stock voltage ... noticing little to no temp diffrence ..
Well, I'm running a GTX680, so I'm pretty sure that my bottleneck is currently my 1055T.

I'm stuck on whether I should just spend $200 and upgrade to an 8350 and use my existing 9-series motherboard. Or if I should wait a little and pony up a little extra for an i7 build. And I say i7 over i5 because of the folding that I do. All I would need is a Z77 motherboard and a processor, but it would still run me over $400.
