I just ordered a new core i5 system. What's the farthest I can push the CPU before I need an after market cooler safely?

Asus p7p55d-e mobo
intel core i5 750
HD 5870
XMS3 1600 ram

hmmm....well EVERY core i5 overclocks to the same level, So its obviously 3.65ghz (Sarcasm)

Noone can tell you exactly, because every chip is different, I dont know your ambient temps, I dont know what case you have, for all i know you could live in a giant freezer.

Just set the Vcore manually to its stock voltage and raise the blck 5-10mhz and then boot into windows run a stress test program like prime95 or OCCT for about 15mins if its ok and temps are under 70C then go back into the BIOS and raise the blck another 5-10mhz, Keep doing this until it crashes/blue screens.
Then go back into the BIOS and back down your blck by 10mhz and test for stability for 12hours.
I wouldn't up the voltage with a stock cooler, just see how far you can go with stock voltage.

Thanks. I've never done Any overclocking but it sounds pretty straight forward.
