I overclocked my Processor to 4.6Ghz@1.34V with temps going upto 79C max while runnning prime95 stress test.

I want to know if i can go beyond this and how, whether i can go further by adding more fans?
Here is a link of cpuz validation http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2650436
My Build:

i5-3570k
cpu fan = CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO(push/pull)
mobo = Gigabyte z77x Ud3h
Ram = Gskill Sniper-Sbr (1600Mhz)
PSU= seasonic sII 520W
Case = Nzxt Phantom 410

Intake - 1X 120mm nzxt stock fan FRONT
Exhaust - 1X 120mm nzxt stock fan REAR

At that clock speed and voltage you are pretty much topping out that Hyper 212 Evo and pushing the limits of that CPU with just a budget air cooler, if you want to go any higher I recommend you look at custom water cooling at this point.

i would recommend the noctua nh-d14 because for $80 it can be just as good as a $100 h100
