I was also wondering how much i could overclock the processor i chose with the heatsink i also chose :)  i would prefer to get it to about 4ghz, if it wouldn't achieve that, please quote me another heatsink.

thanks, and feel free to reccomend ;)

I have heard of a number of people that reach over 4 GHz with the stock heatsink. So with good cooling I would guess based on what I have seen from others that you would be able to reach around 4.5GHz without much effort.
