Will an Intel RTS2011LC be good enough cooling if I want to overclock a 3970X to 4.8Ghz stable 24/7?

Thanks What about this: An article on Tom's: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/core-i7-3970x-sandy... What was said: "However, the RTS2011LC closed-loop thermal solution we’ve been using for testing is able to handle 150 W CPUs" "Today’s -3970X rests comfortably at 4.7 GHz using the same closed-loop liquid cooler.
