Typically, to around 4.5 GHz. Around 10% of the i5-K's will run reliably past 5.0 GHz.
4.5 ghz u can call standard clock for oc'ers your cooler is good try 5 ghz for stability , go up to 5.2 ghz nothing more is required.
btw not related to this i havent seen any 560 ti on evga site with 1.2gb or ftw edition but i saw 2win edition
You'll have to do it to find out. Every CPU and motherboard will be different. And it depends on your goals. Are you looking for max boot clock and don't care about the life of your chip, or are you looking for a stable long-term clock?
