Would a coolermaster hyper 212 evo be sufficient for cooling, or should I invest in something with greater cooling capabilities?

The Hyper 212 EVO is good enough for most applications. If you're planning for massive overclocking you would have to step up to liquid.

I'm also curious about OC'in an i5 4690K with a Hyper 212 EVO. What is a safe frequency I can expect to OC to? What are the expected temps for stock frequency, and for OC?
