i have a i7 2600k and was planning to overclock it, but i dont really wanna risk burning it up or after market cooling or constantly worrying about temps and so, this is what id like to know, is the extra performance noticeable? i mean i see the numbers in posted results but is there a real noticeable difference in performance, i create video games, cryengine, source, etc. would OCing make a huge difference using these programs or should i just leave it stock?

I don't know the specifics but you will definitely see some speed increase. Besides, why did you buy a 2600K if not for overclocking.

Hello topher0455;

OC'ing won't make you a faster typer or reader.
You should be fine with doing some testing at stock and overclocked speeds.
That way you'd know for sure how much it helps your specific workloads.
