So I decided to build my next comp for the first time. I'm familiar with hardware a bit from taking extensive comp. tech. classes in HS, but that was 10+ years ago. The build went fine, but in my ignorance I purchased an i7 4770k (got a good deal), so now I feel like I should try to use the damn thing and overclock. I was planning to just use ASUS 4-way optimization, but alas I bought a CPU/mobo combo with the z87-A, which does not have this feature despite having the AI-suite 3.
For context, I don't care all that much as far as overclocking for a hobby, I just want to play games maxed while having iTunes and maybe a livestream going on my 2nd monitor. I mainly play league of legends (which isn't intensive), but will also be playing the new battlefield. Is there a very basic level of overclocking I could try (auto-tune in AI-suite 3?), or should I just not bother?
