Hi guys, so to start i am a noob been overclocking since 2 days. Every stress test run about 4 hours btw.

Should i keep turbo boost on/off if i oc??

Because of the tweaking around i have to restart a lot my pc is it a problem to my components?

Pc specs: i5-4690k, Hyper D92
Asus H97M-E
24G DDRR 2133mhz
gtx 1070 oc

So there some attemps i did just wanted to know if it decent results and need some tips:

4.6ghz 1.280vcore stress test passed max temp 60C

4.5ghz 1.250vcore stress test passed max temp 55C

and the laste one i that i think i gonna keep;

4.3 ghz 1.150vcore stress test passed max temp 40C

So at the end should i try to squizz more ghz or lower the vcore? Keep in mind that i am not planning to oc a lot.

Much better than my 4690K, mine needed 1.25v just to maintain 4.3GHz, and 1.28v for 4.4GHz.

Kind of jealous to be honest.

But yes, knowing what stress test you're using would be helpful.
