I have a core i5 2500K overclocked to 4.5GHz with 1.31 voltage, ran Prime95 Blend and it's rock stable. Max temp after a couple hours is 63C. It's cooled by a Corsair H80 water cooler. Should I try and over clock further or is 4.5GHz good enough?

U might try 4.7GHz : )

I'd say your unlikely to see much improvement in games with anything over 4.5ghz.
That said bragging rights are always good.

Be worth finding out what your chip can do, even if you decide to back it off abit after. 63C is a nice temp for 4.5ghz. I wouldn't run it 24/7 at anything over 70.

4.5GHz is all you need for gaming even on CPU killers like Skyrim & BF3. Some might even say it's overkill.
