OC the CPU since it's a K series. Check temperatures and make sure it's stable.

if the TC doesn't need to, why do it? it'll probably just stress the parts.


Uhh, the point of getting a K series Intel CPU is to OC it. If you don't plan to OC, then the non-K version of the CPU will do just fine.



There's no point in OC'ing though if it's not being pushed to the limit at stock speeds... which that CPU definitely is not, unless you just like doing that stuff, just because, but for performance... there's no point.

Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Weep, and you weep alone.

I like making sure everything is stable with a stress test while downloading a game or 2 for benchmarking.
