    Depends on the amount of overclocking you do.

    But point to remember, overclocking gives you free performance increase... so why not do it?

    but how much? People buy water cooling systems to lower the temp of their overclocked cpu,gpu. But is it really worth the money??

    P.S I am a total noob about overclocking

    It is if u OC it to a higher level. like if someone uses 3Ds max for rendering at stock clock(let's say 3.5GHz) he might need 10 min to render a certain file maybe with 5GHz only 7 min that might save a lot of time but ofcourse u need better cooler, better motherboard for that.

    and one more thing OCing is not something that all of us need. it is kinda lyk we want it

    but for gaming... if u have an i3 or i5 and have a full HD monitor and good GPU u really dont need ocing...

    actually depends on game and the software , like if you play a game like crysis 3 and a GPU like 680 with i5 processor over clocked to 4.4 or higher then you will get higher performance than stock clocked processors but if you play a game like caselvania then the performance will be same

    - - - Updated - - -

    and also if a GPU gets bottleneck at stock clock from the cpu then over clocking the processor will give better support

    CPU overclocking usually increases performances for only CPU related activities.

    You get fps boost by overclocking GPU, but sadly you cannot overclock a GPU that much. And overclocking CPU will help fps but only if there is bottlenecking with the GPU.

    I am currently running my 3770k at 4.4Ghz from 3.50Ghz. Before it was being cooled with a Zalman 9900 MAX (air cooler) and currently with Corsair H110 280mm AIO (water cooler), although I don't see that much benefit from using water cooler. And my gtx680 is already factory overclocked, still overclocking it by only 52Mhz, I get like 5-10 fps more depending on the game.

    5-10 fps more is huge increase. Another question, does overclocking ram and decreasing ram timing helps?

    Than 1600mhz ram is enough :-)

    There is no real world benefit of overclocking rams, so I don't do it.

    You don't have to get a high end cooler, there are some great cheap air coolers which allow to overclock quite well. Processors like 2500K could handle decent overclocks even with stock cooler.

    No not RAMs lol, he just said there's no real world benefits. He meant GPU.

    Yours is a mid-range config, don't call it low end As long as you stick with the proper settings, you should be fine.

    I beg to differ, my stock cooler barely keeps the chip under 80C on stock clocks. Maybe I got a bad cooler, but it's tiny.

    P.S I am a total noob about overclocking
    Most people that buy watercooling systems run high clocks 24/7, and CPU overclocking allows margin-able gains, especially if your CPU is bottlenecking (please google the term) your graphics card. Whether it's worth it or not really depends on the user.

    At stock clocks? It should be a lot better than that.
