    Not worth it. Since you're asking and don't provide any helpful information about what you use your machine for, it's probably going to do more harm than good.

    I used to overclock PC's back in the 1990's. I don't mess with any of that now as I feel the speeds and multiple cores are more than adequate to meet all my needs. I just don't see it as worth much value in productivity. I think the only reason for doing so now is just for bragging rights. Just my opinion. :)

    My reason for OC'ing is to gain 5-10fps in games, which is often the difference between playing at 1080p or managing 1440p.

    No bragging rights at all, just my own enjoyment.

    750Mhz/1075Mhz works for me on the GPU.
