In the past I tried to overclock my i3-550 with a 10% overclock by upping the clock base, my first ever overclock attempt. Anyways it screwed up, computer turned off and on several times, then when the system told me that the overclock had failed it let me return to my default settings... So then I went on to my computer like nothing had happened but the internet connection and internet related OS features were SCREWED. I couldn't even use ipconfig because an internal error occurred. Any ways I just "upgraded" windows back to XP which it already was and everything went OK again, but the internet would disconnect frequently. Anyways I just built a new computer with an i5-3570k and an Asus p8z77-v pro mobo and I was wondering if I should try again... I have no idea what went wrong the first time and I would hate for this significantly more expensive system to break down like that. Please give me some suggestions on how I could push an overclock without having to worry about something awful like that again!
