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)

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.
