Your specs didn't list. It's a blank page. Pull up your list, then use the "bb" at the top and copy/paste.

Number 1 rule of OC. Baby steps. Start small, lock all the cores, then test. See how the temps are. Raise your multiplier by 1, test again.

There's some decent testing software out there, my preferences are Coretemp, realtemp, Ryzen Master, Prime95 small fft w/AVX disabled (for temps only), Asus RealBench for stability.

With aircooling, temp test 5 minutes in p95. With liquid cooling temp test 30 minutes, rest 15 minutes with p95. Verify temps with Coretemp and/or Ryzen master (if amd).

Number 1 piece of advice, don't rush things, have patience. A good stable OC can take months to dial in right, or hours just to get 'good enough'. Get acquainted with your bios, learn what all the settings are for, what they are, what they mess with. The more research you do on OC, the better. Get acquainted with resetting bios procedures, resetting cmos etc, you'll probably run into the need for it. OC almost always does.

Lol. That's not a rule. That's a necessity. There's no rule saying you must wear shinguards and a cup when playing soccer, but only a fool with a death-wish would try. Same applies to OC. Need correct equipment, or don't play, it's not pretty if you catch a foot where it doesn't belong.
