First Build EVER..
First off I would like to say amazing site! I've been a long time reader and just recently finished my first build. Here are my specs:

Intel Ivy i5 3570k 3.4 GHz
Asus P8z77 VTX
Geforce GTX 560 Ti OC from zotac
2TB HDD
8gb(2x4gb) G Skill ripjaw
Coolermaster GX750W Power supply
Asus Xonar 5.1 sound card
Haf 922 mid tower(black with red led)
LG blu ray/dvd burner combo disc drive
Noctua NH-D14 CPU cooler.(It's a HUGE fan but surprisingly very quiet)

I have to say when it comes to some computer savy stuff I'm a little green so please be easy. This rig is replacing a 7 year old PC I previously have so it's like going from the stone age into the future haha. Runs everything great. Only thing that I'm kinda having trouble with is OC my cpu. I'm using intel extreme tuning utility. I've managed to get the cpu up to 4.2 Ghz without increasing voltage at all.

A few questions:
1) should I increase the voltage at all on 4.2ghz?

2) whenever I try to get it to OC past 4.2 while increasing the voltage it is never stable. What should I be doing?

3) Also every now and then I get a little noise that happens(kinda like a beep but not really) and the PC slows down for a fraction of a sec, what the heck is that? CPU issue? or motherboard? *EDIT the sound is coming form the HDD I just figured that out.*

Anyways thanks again for this site and if this should be posted in another section let me know.
