Dear Community,

Recently, I managed to pick up a i5-750 + Asus P7P55D bundle for a great price, and would like to crank things up a bit. I would like to know if my current OC settings are alright, and whether or not the voltages might be too high. As for the cooler, its the trusty Hyper-212 with arctic 5 silver. The RAM is the energy efficient G-Skill

Thanks in advance.

Not bad. Have you tested with Prime95 or linX yet? What are load temps?

Also, that ram looks pretty high (1800 vs rated speed of 1600). Might want to drop the multiplier a notch, at least for now.

Running both of them right now (is that a bad idea?) for just over an hour now, and it doesn't look like there's been any restarts/error messages coming up. I've also upped the RAM voltage to 1.55v and multiplier by 21.

At the same time? It won't hurt anything, but it actually might not work as well as both alone.

Here's a guide for linX

For reference: at 3.6 GHz, my i5 gets around 51-52.5 GFlops. If you don't get very near that at 3.6 GHz, the test is not running properly. If you can pass 50 tests at 51-52 GFlops, your chip is quite stable.
