The CPU I'm going to get is the Intel core i7 4770k, what overclocks will I be able to achieve with the Hyper 212 Evo. A lot of people recommend it, and it's dirt cheap too.

how far of an overclock you can get is different with every chip, since Haswell has a reputation for some serious heat production, the 212 EVO may only get you to 4.2GHz but, if you are lucky and have a good chip, you may be able to go up as high as the CPU will allow.

Ok, thanks. I might also get something like a Corsair H100i or a CM Seidon 240m

either or should do fine but, i've heard the H100i is slightly better when compared to the seidon 240m.

Hello Derppppp,

Haswell runs extremely hot so if you are looking to reach a maximum overclock then i would suggest looking at either the Eisberg 240L or the Glacer 240L. Otherwise as stated above you should be able to reach 4.0-4.2 depending on voltage.

I could not find Glacer 240l, however, I did find the Eisberg 240l - but it was out of stock. My best options are the H100i and the Seidon 240m. I've never overclocked before so I don't know all the bells and whistles.

I've heard overclocking voids your warranty, is that true?

The Noctua NH D14 is just as effective at cooling, is cheaper and is quieter: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/h100i-elc240-seidon...
