Please use pm or email option. Don't want to clutter this thread up with a dummy guide. Unless one of you is located in or near belgium and is willing to take a trip and do it yourself :-)
this is all you need plus my comment about RAM ocing from my previous post in this thread.
But, with your approach I would not OC. OC needs time or you will end up with unstable machine. I mean many people do quick OC and then their PCs restart randomly, and their windows and apps become slowly corrupted over time which is even worse as it is hard to notice but causes even more restarts and slow downs and wasted time.
Cutting corners is not what you want with OC.
If you want a quick variant opt just for CPU OC. If you have a good sample and you are lucky and you do not care for lowest vcore possible you can have it fully stable in 24h and be done with it. But as you will be doing it for the first time might be 2-3 days which is not that extreme anyway.
Oparr - adaptive is not the way to OC your CPU.... superkyle is right. It can be done but it would be for more experienced users and it is still a waste of time as it is not the fastest way.Edited by sebna - 7/9/16 at 11:52pm
