Hi, I am overclocking my i5 3570k. I am currently at 4.1Ghz and am wondering how far I can go without changing the voltage, while keeping a stable overclock. I have a Corsair H60 liquid cooler and the max. temp. at 100% load is 56'C. So cooling is no issue. I have heard that anywhere between 4.3-4.5Ghz is max. without a voltage change, but I want to be certain.

it depends on the chip. I've heard 4.2 without voltage. Just try it and see if it is stable. As long as the temps don't get too hot, as far as I understand it, you won't hurt your chip. Overvolting and overtemp is what kills chips.
keep pushing it and running prime95 at each increment to check for stability and keep an eye on the temps.. with a modest voltage increase and a decent cooler like the 212evo or nh-d14 you can get 4.4-4.5ghz. without a voltage increase though i couldn't tell you what your max clock would likely be
