KBRADY1979 is the resident expert on OCing.

I'm sure he'll be along shortly-if not, PM him,I'm sure he'd be glad to help.

Just realized you cannot PM until you have more posts, but Kelly will be here, I'm sure.

Looks like a fresh system and install. I'd run it for a week of so to make sure you don't have any hardware and/or software issues before overclocking. That will also give the heatsink compound a chance to set. Besides that, It will give you time to read up on overclocking and learn what items are critical to a stable system.

LOL I'm far from the resident OC'ing expert, but thanks for the compliment! If it were Ivy Bridge, I could have you overclocked in a few minutes.........Haswell/Z97 setups, on the other hand, are quite a bit more complicated to do it correctly. There are some other guys on here that have overclocked Haswell CPU's successfully and safely and I'm sure they will be able to help you out.

I have to agree with carwiz also.........I'd run it stock for a week or so to make sure things work like they are supposed to. Take this time to stress test it to record voltages, temps and to find a good guide on OC'ing that particular CPU/Mobo. I bet there's a guide out there that tells you exactly what each feature does, what to change and what not to change.

What kind of CPU cooler do you have?

I don't know why you are bumping.
Have you done any of the stress test while you are at default and recorded results as recommended?
My clock says it hasn't been a week or so.

Please read the forum rules.

what kind of stress test software should I use, is what I was getting at.

Unless you're in a hurry to RMA parts, you shouldn't be doing any "stress" test now. The parts need a period of "burn-in" and that's done with light usage. Did you even read the manual for your CPU and motherboard? I guess not since you didn't read the directions here?

Things to do on my new systems.
1. Run your system for a week or so at default with no stress test to make sure everything is working properly.
Always watching the temps.
2. Stress test my system at default and log the readings.
Ambient temps
CPU temps
GPU temps
Load
Under load time.
This information will let me know if everything is okay before continuing.
It will also give me a log I can compare with when I over clock.
