  1. The H60 isn't that good of a cooler. I'm guessing here as I haven't personally used one, but I'd probably say sticking below 4.4Ghz@1.25v or so would be around where you're going to end up. I would have bought a hyper212+ with two kickin` fans and got excellent air performance that would probably exceed the capabilities of the H60 instead.

    Well I think it's too late, I would stick with the H60, anyways how big is the Noctua NH-D14? Will it fit in a Sharkoon Vaya Value White?
    And what OC I can get with the Noctua get with safe temps and voltage?
  3. Every chip is different. You'll have to experiment with your system in order to find the "sweet" spot for your chip. To be honest, you really don't need to overclock. Even if you intended to, you should have done some research on the H60 before your purchased it.
  4. I'm currently running GeForce GTX660 TI + I7 3770K Ivy Bridge with H60 - Push Pull with 2 120MM Fans and its currently overclocked too 4.3GHz stably.
    The temperatures are stable with a Max of 83Degrees and a Min of 72Degrees over all 4 cores. (This is after 12 hours of Prime95 Stress testing).

    I would say it could perform at 4.5GHz stably, However 100% loading would most likely over heat past 90Degrees.
