3570k OC/670's

February 2, 2013 2:48:01 PM

In the process of building a new machine, rest of the parts will be here Tuesday. Looking for recommendations/suggestions for OC'ing the processor.

Should I upgrade the fans on the cooler master if looking to OC to 4ghz 24/7?

Since the Cards are oc'ed stock, is it even worth trying to OC more? I have seen people get some good results with it, but not sure if they added additional cooling.
