This will be my first time overclocking a CPU. I've read up on it and I believe I understand how it works, but a couple of things that ppl seem to not cover -
1) Let's say I'm able to overclock to 5ghz on all cores. When you overclock, does the CPU always run at that speed, or only when it needs to, like when you're playing a demanding game?
2) I understand temps will go up, and kind of same question as 1. Will they consistently be up or when it's under load?
3) finally, should I expect to hear my cooler more even when idle? For example, some ppl overclock their GPU's and don't mind the extra fan noise, but I'm sensitive to a loud PC.
