Stock cooler, no OC. Averaging between 3000-3100 MHz.
Temperature is around 40°C idle.

Just wondering if this is normal, as I just ordered a new cooler and want to OC.

Best regards.

You mean the temps ? On idle a bit high, but not serious, stress test the system using OCCT or prime 95 ..
As for core clock, it can be oced a lot more, that would require upping the v core, but monitor temps closely.
Indeed a cpu cooler would be good here-

I was actually wondering if the speed was too high? Isn't it supposed to average around 2700 MHz? I realize that it can be OC'd a lot more. But is 3000-3100 MHz normal stock speed?

Ok, you didnt oc, is there turbo boost/mode active in bios, ?
If yes, that would be it.

Any way to check that without booting into bios?
I'm using the ASRock P55 Extreme.
If it's activated, should I disable it before I OC?

Appreciate your answers and your time :)

You don't have to but it's a good idea to prevent the overclock getting too high.
