Overclocking Performance

Using a rather high 1.520v we were able to push the Core i7-3770K to 4.92GHz which isn't bad, that is 100MHz higher than we have been able to get our Core i7-2600K processor.

Overclocking the Core i7-3770K processor to 4.90GHz allowed for an additional 21% performance in the first past test and 26% for the second pass test. This made the Core i7-3770K considerably faster than the i7-3960X.

When testing with CINEBENCH R11.5 we saw an additional 27% performance from the overclocked Core i7-3770K, though this wasn't enough to overtake the i7-3960X in this test.
