    No....I'm running a 5820k at 4.4 for a daily clock, and disable cores and run 2 of them at 5.0, and it'll add almost 100 points....doesn't have to be a bottleneck to make gains by adding CPU clock. Now, you won't gain anything in the graphics test on Firestrike, unless you're running an AMD processor, but the Unigine benchmarks both, especially Valley, will benefit from higher CPU core clocks.

    The minimum fps ranges are a byproduct of that....most of the time during my "testing runs" at my daily clock, the fps will drop down under 20....during my scoring runs, it'll hold 25+ usually.

    Benchmarks are funny. It is interesting to here everyone's point from what they have been through. Sometimes they don't make sense

    they are certainly not an indication as to how your rig will run games especially as some people will turn control panel options to a minimum and run overclocks just to bench , its very hard to compare systems and performance , also you can run a benchmark 10 times and get wildly differant results every time

    If your clocks are stable, the scores will be within a small margin of error.....

    And...the performance gains from overclocking the CPU, would depend greatly on how the game is optimized, and utilizes the processor. Some games are very CPU intensive, specifically games that use the processor for physics calculations (not to be confused with PhysX).

    The best indication of in game performance, would be the graphics score from Firestrike. That is almost completely GPU, unless, like I said earlier, you're using an AMD processor...which causes a slight bottleneck in Firestrike with the more powerful GPUs.
