Overclocking and... Windows 8?

Hello SF members.

I have one short question.
How about overclocking on Windows8 ?

Is there anyone who tried this, is all programs compatible (like SpeedFan, CoreTemp, RealTemp, IntelBurnTest, Prime95, etc...) ? Is there some problems ?

I didn't found OC forums on EightForums so I don't know is Win8 good for OC or just to stay on Win7...

You can overclock Windows 8 in exactly the same way as Vista, Windows 7 and other OSes. The same cautionary warnings regarding temperature etc. still apply.
