  1. What are your system specs? OC Genie is ok but it's always better to manually overclock because OC Genie will use too much voltage which will result in higher temps.

  3. You've got a really nice set up!! I don't have experience with that cooler but I think you can get 4.4 with that cooler. Read some guides and you'll be overclocking manually in no time.
