I have an ASUS Maximus Hero VI and a G Skill Sniper 16GB 2400 kit. My CPU is intel i7-4770k. Is there a simple guide I can refer to or can you guys give my a brief way to do this. I am a first time builder and I don't know much about setting things up in the BIOS menu. Should I overclock my CPU as well? I am going to be gaming at a max of 1080p on a 144hz monitor if that matters, also some amateur video editing. Thanks in advance. Sorry about not posting the full specs, here they are: intel i7-4770k EVGA Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 Superclocked Samsung Evo 840 1TB Asus Maximus Hero VI G Skill 16GB RAM 2400 - I read up and it said the base speed is 1333 or something like that Asus 144hz monitor Cooling - Cooler Master Hyper T4 PSU - Corsair RM Series 750 Watt ATX/EPS 80PLUS Gold-Certified Case - Antec 900 Windows 8.1
I haven't put the pc together yet because I heard I should overclock the RAM sticks before I finish putting it together.

Check what speed your RAM is running at now.
If its at 2400MHz, overclocking it would be useless.
However OCing your CPU makes a lot more sense.
But provide your FULL system specs, cooling, PSU, etc.
Initially just go into BIOS and enable XMP set to 2400 and try, the system will make the adjustments...may require a slight CPU OC, which is also painless, the Hero will automaticall try and set OCs to 4.2, 4.4 and 4.6
