My system info:-
Intel i5 650 @ 3.2 ghz
GTX 560
6gb ram
silverstone strider 500w

My cpu is bottlenecking the card in battlefield 3 and skyrim, i get random fps drops. I want to overlock my cpu to get rid of these fps drops.
Will it be safer to overclock it and to what?can i overclock it to 4.0 ghz?I am a noob at overclocking, so do tell me how do i do that step by step with the proper voltage. And yea, i don't have any cooler, using the normal stock fan.

You can't overclock to 4ghz on the stock cooler. I suggest getting a cooler master hyper 212!

I've seen people get 4GHZ on these and high end cpus for this platform just fine on stock cooling. Some people have managed although with the K version up to 5ghz on air. If you are not that interested in overclocking then I suggest a true quad core.
