With so much performance on offer, there's no reason to overclock this system, and because of that we thought it was the perfect reason to overclock it! - We pushed both the CPU speed up and the video cards up.

We also pushed the video cards up a little, moving from 880MHz on the core and 5500MHz QDR on the memory too 920MHz on the core and 5800MHz QDR.
