Overclocking

It’s nice to have an i3 that can be overclocked, particularly one that will hit the dizzy heights of 5 GHz although compared with the i5 and i7 retails chips it did require a little more volts to get it there. When playing with the overclocks it did ‘feel’ like it wanted to give us more too but even with volts increased to 1.4 we couldnt even get a 5.1GHz screenshot so we stuck with a nice round 5GHz with 1.35v. There is no doubt that the i3 7350K despite its fairly big price tag, can reward you with some fun and games. Even the IMC isn’t short of some grunt under the hood, pushing our DDR4 close to the 4000 MHz barrier and we have a feeling that this was a board limitation rather than the silicone itself
