    Please read this before proceeding further. It will help

    I am not sure if your cooler is sufficient for OC; I would recommend Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus/Evo or Noctua NH-D14 (please check if it is compatible for your spec and case) or Corsair H80 or H100. Your CPU is a 1155 socket. Please check if these coolers are compatible for your CPU.

    I believe it is a new build. Please go to the intel site and purchase an overclocking protection plan. It costs $20 for your CPU. Please read this at Tom's
