    Hi, as the title, do you guys still overclock? For 24/7 usage not just for benchmarking

    i have a 13900k on a strix z790e and gskill ddr5 6400cl32

    Cooler is arctic freezer ii 360
    Bios says sp97 and i was wondering if its worth looking to overclocking still for 24/7 use

    I think this gen will be more about undervolting, which is a form of overclocking anyway.

    I have A.I. overclocking enabled in my BIOS with XMP II selected. I've OC'd my 4090 to 3ghz on the core and 11,300 to 11,500 on the memory. I've witnessed 5 to 15 fps increase in some titles. I just finished testing my OC profile in Cyberpunk and witnessed a 7 to 11 fps increase. I have 10 Lian Li fans and a water cooled CPU.

    My intel build is practically the same as yours. I messed around with the overclocks just to see the difference in framerate. Our default clocks gives us fantastic performance. If my framerate in most games is well over 100fps @4K max settings, the extra frames aren't noticed very much in my opinion. I've decided to shutdown the overclocks due to having outstanding performance without them.

    My Intel Build

    Asus Tuf 4090 OC
    Asus ROG Strix Z790-F

    Do you have 2x32 sticks? Or 4x16?

    Great! Thanks! I might add another 2x32Gb to fill the 4 slots for aesthetics
    just that from experience in my previous rig, going from 32 to 64 didnt do anything for me performance wise

    You're right fellow Guru. 99% of the time it doesn't unless you're doing some heavy creating.

    It does look nice seeing all 4 slots filled though. but any issues with the memory controller with populating all 4 sticks?

    No not at all. On the Intel side of things the BIOS accepts compatible memory nicely. Configures with ease. The only complaint I have about the Z790 motherboards are the Ethernet controllers. The 1226-V is garbage. I purchased an adapter and my download speeds are top notch now. I hope you have a good revision and don't run into problems.
