@op you probably feel fine because your rig matches your need. i oc because i want to squeeze out every bit of performance on my chip for work and i cant afford to buy more expensive ones lol. but i do run stock also when doing not so important stuff, i just disable turbo.

Stock is just untapped potential. Nothing wrong with it.
I run my AMD rig overclocked *and* undervolted, lowest P-state at .85V from default 1V. Best of both worlds, power when I need it, efficiency when I don't.

I don't know why but when I overclock, I feel like my computer is going to suddenly die on me or it feels like it is running slower. iono why, but I guess I have a fear of oc'ing?

Who else runs on stock and is proud about it?

Btw this isn't a troll post. I'm trying to see if I'm not the only one with OCPhobia.

Also I hope that you at least don't leave everything on auto volts and try to turn down the volts for heat and longevity
i actually got the ram cheap with a motherboard i bought from a user here. tbh, the ram is going to waste with the cpu... actually running the ram at 1333mhz with 9 timings...

btw what do you mean auto volts? i just have it on w/e the bios sets it at on default.

I overclock just because I wanna see what I can get out of my pc, then I revert back to stock settings as necessary. I usually never need the computing power so I figured I might as well save some energy as well as prolong the life of my hardware

Its always feels uneasy because of all of the trials and error and then a possible error despite all the trials at times. But I think its a rewarding experience to overclock because we get the chance to push what our hardware can do to some extent giving us some performance increase, bigger e-peen, more knowledge, and becoming part of a special group of ppl.

With regards to the topic, I run my Mac and Gateway laptops on stock and I am proud of it....to some extent.
Actually we are part of a special (and dieing) group!
As pads, laptops and even phones become faster and more sophisticated, Desktop computers are a dieing breed, and Desktop overclockers may be the only ones (in the future) keeping desktops alive (an exaggerated statement)!

I've found a OC of between 800MHz and 1Ghz, is a sweet spot for me, balancing cooling and extra performance.
The last cpu I didn't OC was a Pentium III, on Windows 95
