After just building my new rig with this CPU, and comfortably OCing it out of the box to 3.5GHz.. I've read on here that it can sometimes go as high as 3.7ish... would I see any noticeable performance gain from 3.5 to 3.7? or is it just bragging rights?

BTW... this is my first new build since my Athlon XP 2400+ back in the day... and OMG is it snappy :)

LOL nice upgrade there. Depends what you do with it, 95% of people will not notice the difference between 3.5 and 3.7ghz. Check for stability really well at 3.5 for a while, then consider moving up to 3.7

The only time you would notice a difference between 3.5 and 3.7 is if you were playing a game or something that wasn't quite fast enough at 3.5 but 3.7 it kept it above the minimum FPS or something.

Even then, I always squeeze the tightest timings and most Mhz out of my hardware...because it is fun :p

My 240

I like to keep mine a 3.5 cause I have had some issues with crashing when I get around 3.8. I can't notice that much in performance maybe a few frames in games.
