Wow! I OC'd my non k i5 3570 to abou 4GHz from 3.4 (boost clocks) and so far it seems quite stable. My physics score on Firestrike increased from 6400 to 7400 and my fps in the city of Novigrad in Witcher 3 has improved substantially since I am getting significantly higher GPU utilization (aka bottleneck extinguished). OC experts enlighten me. Is this normal? Is it safe? so far my system is stable. I am trully amazed right now.
What CPU would be a worth upgrade from mine for best bang/buck? And i would like to try and keep it under the $300 range. And what motherboards are good now assuming it's an intel cpu so i'd have to switch it. I'd like to keep the mobo cost under $180ish.
