No. At least not yet. First you need to read. Read everything you can find on OC, especially concerning your cpu, your motherboard, the do's and dont's of OC, software boosts, how to get out of a failure, tuning, tweaking, etc.

Even the army doesn't expect ppl to jump out of a perfectly good airplane without having gone through training, lessons, test jumps from towers etc. The last thing that you want to do is jump into OC blind. Get educated first.

The only reason anyone is scared of anything is because it's an unknown. Once you have a good idea of what OC is, it's expectations, it's limits and results, you'll find its not so scary after all.

Not with a manual OC. With manual, you set a baseline test, with nothing but the pc as is, no extra stuff. Then you'll adjust the OC as wanted/needed.

Using artificial boosts on top of a manual OC can result in conflicts and instability because the boost is a variable that changes multiple settings, some of which you cannot see, but are included in the bios.
