Hey, I'm looking to OC my system but don't know much about doing it. I have a Geforce GTX 1660 ti OC an intel i7-8700k, corsair vengeance RGB pro 3000mgzh and an ASUS ROG strix z390f . For starters, can I even OC? And is it even worth OC'ing them? And if it were to, what should OC first/which will give me better frames in-game. This is very general, I just wanted to get a bit of a better idea of what I can do :) Thanks

I have a similar set up. 9700 & 1660 Ti. I think you can overclock. Consider downloading MSI afterburner. I used it for years. For my GPU I have my core clock set at 140 and my memory clock at 1300. No problems. You have a "K" CPU so you can overclock, but I havent OC'ed a CPU so I wouldn't know.

I would not use software but do it in BIOS

Pretty hardcore, eh?

Maybe not these days, but still

Well, if something goes wrong, software OC is tricky.
