Don't see why you'd doubt him TBH, he does a fine job of explaining it eloquently and simple.

I've never messed with my baseclock and always view it as the realm of OC'ing hobbyists as opposed gaining max value from my system.

I used to, but it affects RAM timing + voltage as well (or used to), so I stopped bothering about it.
It was like juggling plates and you only really noticed the difference in a few apps, if at all. (I was probably deluding myself) :sad: :smiley:

Wouldn't affect RAM timings on a modern mid range and up board where you can fine tune your own timings. Voltages can be individually altered also, that's why I don't bother. Far too much hassle for the gain. OC'ing to those extents are about the challenge.
