Turning AA and AF on, we can see the 3.8GHz setup does come out slightly faster.

WIC finds a good extra 4FPS with the 3.8GHz setup in the minimum department, bringing us so close to that 30FPS minimum we love to see.

Under Left 4 Dead we can see the overclock does very little when it comes to extra performance here, with both setups scoring almost identically.
