    No don't overclock. I think overclocking is risky and useless, after all your PC specs are enough to run any game smoothly on high settings and do not need over clocking. Well, if you're willing to get a better cooling system and also willing to take the risks if something happens to your CPU then go ahead and overclock but i wouldn't recommend it.

    Why would you buy that cooler and then not overclock? Yes you should overclock, I'd go for around a 4.2 Ghz OC to be safe and then bump it up if your temps are good.

    Yeah man for sure, just keep an eye on your PC temp. If you notice it starts running hot just put it down a notch. Also what do you use the PC for?

    Only if need be; and you have a sufficient cooling system.

    I really see no need to overclock other than a bigger e-peen.

    You really don't need to unless your doing high tensity work on your rig.

    Otherwise it's not needed.

    But I mean if you built a rig just for an OC build, (Didn't look at your build.) than of course overclock it.
