    Looks like a very nice system! You'll be very happy with that one I'm sure.
  2. I was also wondering how well I would be able to overclock this build?
    Any idea(s) how much I could stably overclock each part, if i can at all?
  3. With the hyper 212, I'd say you could expect 4.4-4.5Ghz. Your case's airflow looks good. You just never know until you try though, as each chip is different.

    I had the hyper 212 on my previous build, and it was decent. But if you are looking for more overclocking than that, you'll probably want to upgrade your cpu cooler to either closed loop liquid cooling like the H100i, or for air cooling go to Noctua's NH-D14 cooler (for example).
