Would this new built system be good for OC?

Hello, I'm going to build this system next week and I was hoping to over clock the CPU to something like 4.7GHz and was wondering if I'm set to go, or whether I would need to change anything.

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P

CPU Intel Core i5 2500K 3.30GHz

CPU cooler Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler

GPU Asus GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU II 1536MB GDDR5 (Possibly the coolest looking graphics card ever?)

Memory Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Dual Channel Kit

PSU Corsair TX 850W ATX2.31 80 PLUS® Bronze certified Power Supply

Optical drive Samsung S222AB 22x DVD+/-RW SATA Black - OEM

More about would built system good
  1. I think you'd be better off with 2 560ti's and we all know 2 vid cards look cooler then one :)

    No HDD or SSD?

    The rest looks good though.
  2. I'm planing on two 580's soon, although I was thinking about two 560 ti's. Yeah SSDGB for the OP, and a 1TB Black WD HDD :)
  3. if you have that kind of money, i would upgrade to an i7 2600k. Its only an extra $90 or so, and it will give you a huge boost in your performance. Also, if you are spending that much money on this system, and are wondering about OC'ing, why not going with either the Noctua which is probably one of the best Air Cooling HSF out there, or better yet, Water Cooling Loop? Talk about looking awesome! 2 things to think about, but like slcmike said, your rig will be just fine to OC.
