i7 2600k overclocking potential?


I am thinking of swapping out my 3570K@4.3ghz for an i7 2600k, I can get it for around £30 and I think that's a reasonable price for the bump in multicore performance provided I can overclock it to at least 4.5ghz. I realise that the Silicon Lottery plays a part in determining overclocks, but I was hoping to find out what other's had achieved and what core speed, voltage and cooler was used.


I currently have a Noctua NH-U14S which is keeping my i5 under 70 degrees with 60% fan speed.


Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thank You ?

I've been able to hit 4.5ghz with my 2600k on a Noctua NH-U12S quite easily. (iirc i was able to hit up to 4,8 but voltages and temperatures were quite insane)
