    Considering I get like 2800 points I say you win. As long as your happy with the FPS I would say leaving it alone is perfectly fine.

    Quite an upgrade BTW, I'm super jealous xD

    why would you want to overclock a system as powerfull as yours?
    I think that oc makes sense when games start to be so demanding that on stock clocks
    they won`t run smooth anymore....thats when oc might save you from buying new hardware
    (for a little time)
    don`t spoil your warranty by overclocking
    I`m jealous - just as whiffen is:cool:
