Hi

Sorry for the noob question here but I've not done a whole lot of overclocking for a number of years.... I have an Intel 10850K which when running Prime95 seems to max out at 4.8Ghz @ 78*C and my RAM is currently running at 3600Mhz. Am I going to be able to get much more out of my system by overclocking? It seems like the temps are already pretty high and ive heard the 32gb sticks generally arent amazing and overclocking

In terms of CPU cooling, i have a Corsair Hydro H115i RGB Platinum however the fans have been replaced with BeQuiet! Pure Wings 2 140mm fans, would I gain much by putting in the high-speed fans which would give me about 50% more airflow?

If it runs everything you play alright then I'd leave it be. That's not to say you couldn't use a lower voltage though, it's volts that matter more than frequency for temps.
