Hi guys, first time here.

The question is simple, on this rig:

Asus P7P55D
Intel i5 750 (cooler stock)
Ram DDR3 1333 cl7

how much OC can I give it?... the fact that the memory is running at 1333 mhz would limite me?

Your ram, NO

Your stock cooler, YES

Spend $30 on an aftermarket cooler (like the 212+) before you even think about OCing.

Thx for the answer!

Im planning to buy a 212+ just like you said.

Btw, can you give me a link to a begginer's guide to do this overclock?

Thank you ppl, I'll give it a try as soon I get a decent cooler.

Btw, how much OC can I get with cooler stock?, temps?

Not much if you don't want kill you CPU, the max that I get with my stock cooler was 3.8GHZ (3.2GHz stock), but the stock cooler of the i5 could be different.

So, you can try to OC with the stock cooler, but always keep one eye in your temps, not above 55C-60C or could be dangerous.

I remembered that I overclocked my old E6300 from 1.86 to 3.2 ghz stock cooler...

24x7 for almost 2 years, not one problem.
