Hobby? Any advantage of overclocking CPU then?

On older CPUs that are struggling to keep up, you can see some difference, but honestly overclocking is mostly a hobby now-a-days. With modern CPUs overclocking really gives little gains. We are not in the land of being able to almost double the clock speed of a CPU and see real results like we were 7-8 years ago.

For example I have an i5 3570k and I have a pretty hefty 1.1ghz overclock on it and I don't see ANY difference in game performance at all with or without the overclock.
