The Search for GIGABYTE’s #1 Biggest Fan is getting more excitments as days are getting closer to the final round. This week’s winner of a GIGABYTE P55A-UD7 motherboard is Dev Lopulalan from Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Congrats Dev!
The question for Week 5 was: Do you overclock, and if so, what are your main reasons for doing so and why? For example, do you overclock to save money by buying a lower priced CPU and overclocking it to get performance of a higher priced CPU, do you overclock for the fun of it, or do you overclock for the glory of being the world's greatest hardware master.
We have received lots of great comments from you all, thanks everyone! There are indeed lots of reasons for overclocking, some are for saving money, some are for getting more performance; no matter what reasons you might have, we sure hope you have enjoy the fun that overclocking brings to you.
So, let's take a look at our winner Dev's reason for overclocking.
The main reason for me to do overclocking is to squeeze OPTIMUM performance of my processors, memory modules, graphic cards and also other overclockable peripherals. So my money that spent on those gears wouldn't wasted for nothing, in fact i often tally some unexpected performance more than i need.
The other fun thing about overclocking is: "FUN !"
There are many setups and calculations that we could use for our system to run, i could say it's barely limitless. And the reward? Obviously: "Stability and Satisfaction".
What a great joy if our systems could runs at blazing fast - rock steady stability - stone cold temperature - green energy setups. :D
My daily setups always in overclocking mode, no matter if i use it for heavy tasking or just for browsing the internet. Wasting energy? I don't think so, because modern mainboards has excellent features to adjust performance level based on system load.
How about extreme overclocking? Yep, it isn't taboo for me. I did extreme overclocking several times, mostly in overclocking events, just for fun and also to satisfy my curiousity about hardware's behaviour in super-cool sub-zero environment.
We sure feel your "Fun" for oveclocking, Dev!
