Hey Guys,

I just ordered a new PC and was wondering if I should overclock this, and if so, which parts should i overclock? Also do I have enough power/cooling to do so?

Thanks

Is my current cooling, motherboard, ram, power, and cooling sufficient for overclocking?

Yes your system is Support for Oc, if you don't understantd about OC for better just stay in default, and Oc is dangerous and avoid warranty. I suggest read guide first. If you are ready you can ask in the forum.

K's are pretty easy to overclock. You can leave everything at stock values except internal CPU multiplier and perhaps core voltage and achieve a stable overclock if you do not overdo it.

I do not like to overclock video cards. I think they run hot enough anyway.
