How much does overclock increase the performance of your computer?…Does it worth it?


In this video i am not showing you how to overclock your cpu. I am showing you the results of an overclocked CPU. Hi Youtube! Today i will overclock my CPU to see if overclocking worths for editing. In this case i have got a 3D model that i want to render so, let’s get started!!… Warning!! Before you do anything you need to know that overclocking your CPU increases its heat, shorten its lifespan and it’s possible that your CPU may be toasted. Don’t do anything if you don’t know how to proper overclock your CPU. I don’t take responsebility for anything you do. …So, here you can see its normal clock 3.3Ghz Let’s open a 3D model to render to see how fast it renders I will render this 3D model at 2000×2000 pixels at its normal CPU clock at 3.3Ghz and then i will overclock my CPU at 4Ghz to see the difference and how fast is it at stock clock 3.3Ghz vs overclocked at 4Ghz Do you think it worths the risk and heat for a very little increased performance?… And how much will the overclock increase my CPU performance? Here you can see i am using only my CPU to render that. This will take a while so, let’s skip… The render is done, it took 48.14 seconds to render. Let’s see how much did my CPU worked in order to render the image… It worked at 100%!…ok let’s see its temperature. Pretty cool, the CPU have got 34.3 points of Celsius at its cores and 43 points of Celsius at its socket. Ok, now i am at 4Ghz i just overclocked my CPU and let’s see how fast it renders now… I can’t wait to see the results of my 4Ghz overclocked CPU!! You can see i have got the same settings as before so, let’s render to see the difference. This will take a while so, let’s skip… The image have been rendered faster, it took 39.07 seconds to render Let’s take a look at the temperatures… The temperatures are hotter than before. Don’t you wonder if it can affect GPU rendering too?…Let’s test it! Now i am at stock CPU clock (3.3Ghz) and i will let GPU to render the image to see how much does GPU matters! This will take a while so, let’s skip… The answer to “how much does GPU matters” is “too much to be ignored” or “too much to save money from” It’s better to have a good GPU without overclocking your CPU than have a potato or no GPU with an extreme overclocked CPU But, aren’t you wondering what would happen if we have both OC CPU and GPU rendering on?…let’s see! I enabled GPU rendering and overclocked my CPU at 4Ghz too!! Let’s render… This will take a while so, let’s skip… That was a fast rendering, it took 28.46 to render the image. Let’s take a look at the temperatures now… We can see the temperatures are high however… …I have got liquid cooling that’s the why the temperatures are low for that extreme overclock… From 3.3 to 4Ghz is a real big overclock and yet the gain is too small, it doesn’t even worth the risk! If the CPU is for 3.3Ghz it is for 3.3Ghz that’s it! Plus you have to increase the voltages which is risky for any machine to overvoltage so… …if you are thinking about overclocking your CPU, think again about it because it doesn’t worth! I have got some analytic charts for you to show… Here you can see the rendering times in seconds Lower value=better You get very little performance boost for a huge overclock from 3.3Ghz to 4Ghz I don’t think overclocking your CPU worth the risk It’s better to invest some money in graphics card than overclock your CPU. because it doesn’t worth the risk…let’s take a look at the CPU temperatures… Here you can see the temperature of the cores Lower value=Better Remember, overclock reduce your CPU lifespan and increases CPUs heat And all that for a very little performance increase And here you can see the temperature of the socket The motherboard have got a thermometer at CPU socket so we can see CPU temperature on socket I want to show you the GPU temperatures when we allowed GPU to render the image The temperatures have increased when we overclocked our CPU because The temperatures have increased when we overclocked our CPU because Last but not least in order for our CPU to stay stable and continue working at 4Ghz We needed to increase its voltage which it is the most risky part. We needed to increase its voltage, from 1.225 to 1.3 and i don’t think it worths the risk The risk, the heat, the voltage increasement, the too little performance increased and the time consumed to very slowly overclock the CPU makes me understand why overclock doesn’t worth risking. Conclusion: if the application is cpu intense and you overclock you may see some difference…I am not sure if it worths overclocking because you get just a little more performance while temperatures rise very high…I suggest you to pay attention to the graphics card as well because it matter too!…I am NOT recommending you to overclock anyway!!.
