i am finally going to oc my 2500k and i know how but i dont know how far can oc it without doing 2 things

1 dramatically reduce the i5's lifespan
2 oc it so far that my cooler master hyper 212 evo cant handle it

both of these answers can be found by googling oc results.

however, ive heard that 1.4v max for cpu, and only you can tell us if thats too much heat by monitoring temps during stress.

Depends on why you need to oc, what more performance do you need?

well i also have a 7970 (which i will oc as well) and i want my cpu to be able to keep up or not bottleneck the system. also i just want it faster.

1) Mixture of high temperature and high Vcore will reduce the lifespan of the unit. The lower the Vcore the better, but this must be increased when OCing. Along with OCing the temperature at idle and load will be significantly higher.

2) i would not recommend temperatures over 72 degree Celsius. i think Intel and others on the forum stated this. My current build has both that CPU and heatsink and is currently clocked at 4.5 GHz with Vcore of 1.344 V. With the intelburntest my package temperature reaches 76 degree Celsius on maximum stress, which i think is okay as daily use will never push it that far.

You can find guides online as the 2500k is a very popular CPU to overclock.

Bottom line: which those temps and Vcore, stability test after OCing, and make sure you know how to clear CMOS.

To answer both at once, 4500mhz @1.325v + or - with your Air Cooling Solution
