I'm considering doing some OCing on my new build. I'm new to Overclocking and have been doing alot of research on how to do it. I was wanted to know what kinda speeds people were getting with systems like my own.
My system
Intel i7 2600k
Asrock z68 extreme 3 gen 3
8g (1600) corsair venganence
nvidia geforce gtx 680
Noctua NH-D14 cpu cooler

as you can see i'm air cooling the system so I'm not looking to do some serious OCing..

Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

Average, the overclock for those 2600k is around 4.8GHz on air. Keep in mind that you have one of the best coolers in the market, so, temps should not be a problem at least that you live in the sun.

4.8ghz is the max, or the highest speed I am willing to hit with my hyper 212 EVO.
