and if he's building a computer on his own this to me is a no brainer.
To you it may be but plugging parts into pre-determined slots is not the same as true OC'ing. It is absolutely beyond some people.
Plus, some people just like to run stock unless they absolutely have to OC.
I run stock all of the time because I haven't played a game yet that requires me to OC. I have the ultimate OC board too. I have the 990FX Extreme9 and my CPU is on an H70 for now but I still have no need to push beyond stock or the easy boost 4.2.
Arma II is the only game that gives me problems but even OC'ing can't make up for the horrible graphic coding in that game.
