Hello all. As a new pc builder I've been very interested in the process of overclocking my 4690k. I've read hundreds of guides and tutorials explaining the basics on doing such things. I guess what I really want to know is, are there a real day to day benefits of doing this. I understand there's a few CPU intensive games that benefit but I'm talking about as a whole are there real gains from overclocking for gaming and daily computing on a system with a mid range gpu such as a 970? If so could you give examples such as , massive fps differences from o.c. to stock? Or is it more of a hobby to overclcock or just for bragging rights Ect.?
