i5-4670k Overclock 4.2ghz

Specs:
MSI GTX 760 GPU
i5-4670k CPU
Corsair 600w PSU
Asus Z87-K MOBO

So i'm thinking its about time for me to overclock my CPU to somewhere in the low 4ghz (4.1-4.3) and knowing that a stock cooler can barley handle my CPU as it is was wondering if the 212 evo was a good enough after market heatsink to pull this OC off at safe temps.

Was also wondering how hard would it be to install to a pre build PC? Would things need removing (Obviously besides the stock cooler)

Cheers

    everything should fit right in. you just replace the old cooler (... make that airplane engine) with the new one. beware that overclocking is not a guaranteed thing. each piece of silicon is different. some cpu's can overclock more then others.
