    Of course they are. :P
  2. THANKS man
    what about the voltage and GHZ. what shall i set it on?

    If it has the UEFI BiOS, it should set all of that automatically.
  4. Can i get it on 4.3 ghz?

    Yes, that setup should easily go to 4.3 GHz.

    Like the user above said, I could keep voltage set automatically. Regarding stable clock speed, each chip is different, as well as the cooler...but you should have ZERO problem OC the 4670K to 4.3Ghz. Anything above 4.5Ghz (IMO) is where you may find yourself less lucky. Good luck!
  7. Thanks man :)
  8. but is overclocking dangerous?

    If you havent already bought (or cant return) the cooler...I'd check out air coolers from Noctua.

    My personal favorites are the closed loop liquid coolers. No mess, easy to install, great cooling, and most important...they dump the heat outside the case.

    Not at all...IF temps get above their thermal design limits, it will downclock. And if you can get a stable chip, youll likely crash your desktop. Again, these are more of a concern at higher clocks. At 4.3, you could probably have things stable on a reference cooler. You'll do great with your aftermarket solution.
  11. okay, that perfect :)

    Thanks again :)
  12. I am using a Gelid Tranquillo on the 4770k I have in here and have it OC'd to 4.6 Ghz and it does fine. The Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO is a better air cooler than the one I have in here and would be a good choice.
