I want to overclock my Intel i5 750 from 2.6 to 3.6Ghz but I'm not sure if I'll need a new power supply. I'll definatly be getting a new cooler though. I live in the tropics of Australia so it can get pretty hot, is the Hyper 212 EVO good enough? Or should I get something like the Noctua NH-D14?
Intel Core i5 750 @ 2.67Ghz - I don't want a major OC but maybe around 3.6Ghz.
At the moment I have the stock cooler but before I do any OC I plan to get a Hyper 212 EVO or better.
Foxconn Inferno Katana GTI Motherboard
4GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM - I plan to upgrade to 8GB 1600Mhz ram as well.
GeForce GTX 560 Ti GPU
Silverstone 500W PSU - not sure of the exact model.
Win 7 64bit
I mainly use my PC for games and other general stuff but no major video editing or rendering.
BTW I have not overclocked before so I don't know much in that respect.
Foxconn = pure liquid crap made by slave labor. As the old saying goes for those who worked and still work there. "Men as machines and women as men".
If you had a better board everything else about your machine would more than likely support overclocking up to 4ghz without to many issues. You could try overclocking but be slow about trying to reach 3.6ghz. Be sure to check on the board often to look for problems.
