I7 2600K Stable 4.5-4.7GHz Overclock?

I have an i7 2600K with stock cooler, Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3, GSKILL Ripjaws X 8GB 1600MHz RAM in a NZXT Phantom Full Tower Case and have decided that I am going to buy the Noctua NH-D14, I want to know what voltage I should have to overclock to 4.5 or 4.7GHz (preferably 4.7). If possible please provide voltages for 4.5GHz aswell as 4.7GHZ.

    Every CPU is different, so no one can give you an exact answer for that, but in general, 4.5 should be attainable at around 1.300-1.330V and 4.7 around 1.350-1.380V.

    Your CPU could be very different though, and need less or more. It's just not an exact science.
  2. Well,, every chip is different.

    You will have to experiment a lot to see what clock speeds at what voltage your chop can hit.
  3. All chips are different and have slight variations. My 2600K does 4.5 stable @ 1.295v, and 4.6 @ 1.32v. Currently running @ 4.4 ghz stock voltage and cool temps
