    would there be a big difference in performance between a 4.4 and 4.6 i5 2500k oc

    cause of my mobo, I don't have manual oc for vore voltage, so i have to settle for 4.4ghz to keep idle voltage to my satisfactory requirements. 4.6 auto v too much.

    would there be that much diff in realitime appz and games anyway?

    (i know it's a stupid Q but still)
    cpu: i5 2500k @ 4.4ghz
    memory: 2x4gb corsair xms3 @ 1600mhz
    mobo: GA-Z68AP-D3
    gpu: hd3000 intel
    Hdd: OCZ Agility 3 120GB 2.5" SATA-3 ssd, 500gb wd, 300g wd
    psu: Cooler Master 700M
    Case: Arc Midi Tower (fractal design)

    Well, 4.6GHz is 0.2GHz faster than 4.4GHz. That's about 4.5%. Clock speed doesn't usually scale 1:1 with performance, so the actual difference in speed will be less than that. Less than 4.5% isn't a whole lot, so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
