Well I just ordered my new ASUS maximus IV Z68 gene mobo and i5 2500K CPU. How high can I go on o/c with the Zalman CNPS10X Quiet cooler you guys think?

Probably around 4.4 to 4.5GHz max.

Yeah, it's a nice OC. Even if it doesn't happen, you can get to 4.0GHz pretty easily, and that's enough power to last a good 3 or so years.

Depends on the individual CPU chip. On the average, about 4.5 GHz, but about 10% of the i5-K's can reliably run at 5.0 GHz.

Depending on the chip, you can get 4.2-4.6GHz comfortably.

If you're willing to up voltages, you could get up to 5GHz, although I wouldn't recommend it for 24/7 use.
