ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler I'd like to know what the maximum I could possibly push this without causing damage. Are all of these components good for a stable overclock? Also, is there any guides that I could brush up on for overclocking with this Proc/MB combo? I've done some minor OCing with AMD systems, but never Intel.
