I have an i7 3770k coming in the mail for an upgrade on my cpu. I have ordered a Corsair H100 to accompany it for the best cooling possible. What speed can I overclock the cpu to comfortably while still seeing a decent performance gain?
Thanks to all who answer.

well, i have i7 3770 k and h80 well i don't know about h100 about it should be better than h80 the main prolem is the heat it self the ivy bridge grab more heat i tried to reach 4.5 but heat was really high for me reached 100 c and i can't figure out how to fix my heat issue so just watch ou for temps , speed isn't the problem u could go 4.8 but then u would face heat problems because in order to go fast u have to manually vcore and set vcore is gonna grab more heat and heat on ivy bridge = big problem

edite : btw :make sure that h100 gonna fit in ur case and don't go above 1.350 voltage

This article will help you to understand what is going on with the 3770K cpu. It appears that since the Ivy Bridge cpu is a low power cpu that when voltage is applied in overclocking there is a heat issue.
I would read the article and see what your options are. Don't forget every cpu die is just a bit different from each oher and your chances of getting a good overclocker are the same as getting a bad overclocker.
