  1. Your mileage may very but a typical "safe" overclock that I see with that CPU & Cooler combination is ~4.2GHz, you may get better or worse results.
  2. Best answer
    I had mine at 4.4 on water before said water cooler crapped. Running stock atm. RMA should be showing up any day. I wouldn't go much higher than 4.2 on mine with air.
  3. The 4790k hits 4.0 stock and guarantees to boost to 4.4 on the stock Intel air cooler alone. This is without any overclocking on the users part. You can get to 4.5 or 4.6 using the Hyper 212 Evo before temps become prohibitive. Beyond that you will need liquid cooling or a top tier air cooler by Noctua, Phanteks, Cryorig or Thermalright.
