  1. I have the same cooler on my i7 2600K. I go to 4.5GHz on 1.31v. I get around 60C on Core Temp after 2 hours of gaming, BF3. So yes you can overclock. Now keep in mind that my CPU is made on a 32nm process. Ivy Bridge is 22nm. This means that you will have generally warmer temperatures with equivalent settings, but you won't need to because they use less power. You probably won't even have to get to a voltage of 1.25v to overlock to around 4.2GHz. Hope this answered your question, and enjoy your first build!
