    Hi. Yes you would see a great benefit in overclocking. With overclocking, not only do you achieve faster speed for a faster computer, but you eliminate any bottlenecks caused by a good GPU alongside a badly clocked CPU. I would recommend to overclock your 2500k to just the plain old simple 4.0 to 4.5GHz which all 2500k's should be able to handle easily. However, you CANNOT overclock on Intel Stock CPU Cooler. I'd recommend you to invest in a aftermarket CPU cooler such as Collermaster Hyper 212.
    You may check this guide out for the procedure of OC. Cheers

  2. you probably would only gain 3-5 frames on most games and maybe up to 10 in games with bad driver support like skyrim.
  3. There is no more performance gains in games after 4.5ghz.
