Stability/OC Capability check.

I'm building my first Intel Based system here in a couple weeks and I've come up with the following components.

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.

  1. You can probably already run everything you want in that rig without overclocking but anyway here's the link to our basic overclocking guide http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/265056-11-2600k-2500k-overclocking-guide
    It's pretty good and you should have everything you need in there.
  2. i got my 2550k to 5ghz on the same motherboard
