I'm not sure if this is correct but i was once told i was not able to overclock my i7-6700k cpu, due to the fact that when buying parts for my pc, i purchased just 1 sick of x16gb ram. Do i need to have all 4 ram sticks in use to over clock or can i over clock with 1x16gb stick?
Thanks, Ben

Someone'll probably shoot me down in flames but, I can see no reason why not, unless your MOBO requires the RAM Sticks to be installed in pairs.

However, you cannot overclock your processor with a Bog Standard Cooling System, you will almost certainly burn it out
