I tonight have been playing around a little, I have ended up with an OC of 3.88ghz at 1.2v which is the limit for my bord, I've left the memory for another time.

The games I play are Arma 3 (ultra settings) fifa 19(ultra settings) PUBG (ultra settings). I have also downloaded the likes of Mafia 3 and project cars 2 demos all at ultra and WOW! it's just so clear and so smooth, now I'm for sure will be playing lots more as I'm actually enjoying playing games again I'm so happy with everything and I'm glad I spent the money, I guess ima stick with what I got for now as I'm only a casual gamer

I always thought that it was better to have higher ghz than more cpu cores, I thought more would hinder things but I guess now games are now more optimised for higher core count cpu's, been out of the loop for a few years.

Thanks and thanks again people for your advise.

Common misconception. Many think that hz are everything and push their CPU to 5ghz when on the 4core cpu there was no gain after 4.4ghz for games. Not even in CPU intensive MMO like Rift, WOW or GW2. Arma3 and PUBG are pretty damn intensive on the CPU. And for gaming, I see no benefit what so ever in OCing your memory. If you are using it as a workstation, then memory tweaks may be worth it.

May not increase your framerate but I rarely just play a game. Always have something else running. The extra few hz just keeps it all smooth for me. Probably doesn't make much a difference but I hardly use any volts anyway.

To be fair like 5 years ago I think it was more reality than misconception, especially 10 years ago, it's only really since Battlefield 4 and the frostbite update that brought us low-level APIs and 8-core optimisation that we started to get mainstream titles properly using 3+ cores, I think part of it is that game engines now use x86 more efficiently in general though(Anyone remember Skyrim or older PhysX versions still using x87 instructions into the 2010's? Lucky for us Jaguar trimmed off all the legacy x86 extensions).

Also DX11 and earlier(more so) games will always load one core harder than the others so you needed decent IPC on at least one core to avoid choppiness from the GPU not being properly fed or stealing all the CPUs time.

Certain levels on Crysis 3 would use every core you can throw at them. Oddly it's not every level, though. God that game used to get my FX 8320 and more specifically the mobo bloody hot.
