Overclocking your CPU will affect the rest of your system components in various ways. We look at how a single 9800GTX card is affected with syntethic benchmarking using 3DMark06.

Overview

    • This experiment is to record the effects of CPU frequency on 3DMark 06 Scores using a single 9800GTX

    • The conditions will keep the GPU frequencies at stock and 3DMark06 will be benchmarked 3 times for every 200MHz increase in the CPU frequency

    • The CPU used is a QX9650, overclocked from 3.0 Ghz to 4.6 Ghz
