Overclocking for games?

I have a MacBook Pro 15" with an i7 6820HQ @ 2.70Ghz (according to Win10) with 16GB RAM and added an Akitio Node with an EVGA GTX 1070 ACX3.0 so it runs really cool. Is it worth overclocking it a bit to get more performance? How does the TB3 performance degradation affect the overclock? Is it not worth it?

Thanks!

MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016), 2.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3, Radeon Pro 455 2 GB, Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB, AKiTiO Node with GTX 1070

My iMac crashed when I tried to OC the MSI GTX980Ti in a Node using MSI Afterburner with a pretty conservative setting. It seems harder to OC the eGPU than in the regular system. I'm on TB2 BTW. 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

I don’t think it matters what graphics card you have, you should overclock it! 😊 

At least slide the power limit to max, set the max temperature to 90 Celsius, and adjust the fan speed curve so it will be properly cooled. I’m enjoying my graphics card at max oc in 4K, and yea, it’s a big difference if I tune it down to stock settings!
