I have no idea what I'm doing here. OC questions.

So I've finally got around to OCing this here i5-3570K (and the memory as well. It's a 1600 but for some reason defaults to 1333). The only other time I've tried this I used an OC tool that came with my MB because I figured I'd screw something up (this was about eight months ago). That didn't do anything so I tried going into the BIOS...and rainbow bars appeared whenever I booted up a game.


Anyway so I just OCed the memory to 1600 (which is what the box/newegg said it was, but it defaulted to 1333 for some reason) and the CPU to 4.0GHz. Do y'all think I'll run into any problems? Seems fairly stable but I haven't tried gaming for extended periods of time yet. I don't actually have any case fans at all, so I'm worried about it overheating (also using the standard factory CPU fan).

I think it's twice as bad trying to read it on my phone.

I agree. Unfortunately, the mods don't seem to.

OC with a stock cooler isn't a very good idea. I recommend doing a stress test using Prime95 and monitoring the temperature with HWMonitor. If it stays under 90 degrees for about half an hour then you should be safe for general use.

Also, the post isn't hard to read.

I think he should stress test it for an hour at least.
