    "RAM overclocking" should you tighten sub-timings for gaming ? In-depth frametimes analysis

    This is part 1 of the test. It take 3-4 days just to analyse frametimes in just 4 games. Some of you guys probably know how to overclock RAM and how to adjust primary timings. But how about optimizing sub-timings like secondary and tertiary timings for gaming ? Let's find out is it worth it...

    Uncore frequency @ 4.8Ghz vs 4.0Ghz test in 8 games

    Should you overclock uncore frequency ? I think it depend. If you already overclock CPU then why not ? In case of Haswell / Broadwell thing is a bit more complicate because uncore use different voltage but on Skylake (and its brothers) use core voltage so it is like free stuff for extra...

    Wonder about 3dmark06 cpu test with modern cpu

    Why cpu test in 06 still lag (2-3fps) with modern cpu like haswell and why it perform worse on fx system , is it heavily rely on floating point ? For 3dmark11 or firestrike my 4770k do 33-35fps in physics test. So much better than 06.

    R9-290 vs GTX 780 clock for clock ?

    If memory bandwidth equal (I know 290 has 512bit but 780 just 384bit so it can't directly compare memory speed). , clock equal then which is better ? Let's say possible OC : R9-290 @ 1100Mhz vs GTX 780 @ 1100Mhz. Another Q. what is average OC between those card ? Thanks :)
