Hello,
I wanted to ask, is the case CM Silencio 550 suitable for OC (note: idle PC heats up to 50 degrees celcius :??:  ) and what is the safest temperature for OC.
VGA: ASUS GTX670-DC2-2GD5
MB: ASROCK Z77 PRO4
CPU: i5-3570K
PSU (if it does matter :sarcastic:  ): THERMALTAKE SMART PSU 630W 12CM 80+WHITE
Thanks in advance!

The case is fine to OC in, but not if you're using the default CPU fan that came with the i5 3570. You'll want to pick up a Hyper 212 Plus/Evo or similar CPU cooler to keep the CPU's temps down.
