  1. There is no straight answer to how good of an overclock you will get (every piece of silicon is slightly different). But as for the cooler, I wouldn't recommend overclocking on the stock cooler, I don't even like running my processor at stock settings on a stock cooler.
  2. Also, I have a hyper 212 evo, and I reach 4.5 ghz on my 2500k with temps around 65c on full load (prime95/IBT/folding). Ivy bridge runs a little hotter on average though.
  3. Do NOT overclock with stock cooling.

    Do not buy a Thermaltake power supply. Stick with a quality brand like Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Silverstone, Enermax, OCZ, Antec or Rosewill.

    SILVERSTONE STRIDER PLUS ST60F-P 600W is this any good to handle 2 OC GTX 660 Ti's and a oc'd i5 3570K?
  5. 2 x GTX 660 Ti cards in Sli need a recommended 620w power supply.
