Want to OC: intel i5 3570 and GTX660.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
All with standard cooling wich was included with the PC.
What should i overclock it to? Its a new pc...but i am going to play far cry 3 on a 2560x1440p monitor and that on the max settings would be cool(anti aliasing 2x enough). (20+ fps is playable imo)

I would advertise not overclocking on the cpu if you have a stock cooler.

GPU, however, can be overclocked. You should do it.

I would probably avoid an overclock on standard CPU cooling mate. you can pick up a decent cooler that will allow you to overclock and they are pretty cheap now.

That last one wil also work for 660 i think
i think max settings wil be unplayble on this kind of setup.
fps shooters wil need at least 30fps.
