Beyond what clock rate would an i5 2500k's cache start to bottleneck?

I've always wondered, beyond what clock rate would an i5 2500k's 6MB cache start to bottleneck the performance when gaming? I know that processors with large amount of cache ran around processors with smaller amount of cache in circles at high clock rates.

It won't. You can't push a 2500K far enough, even on water cooling, for that to become any kind of issue.
