I want to overclock.

So I've been saving up for a i5-6600K and I have been wondering how much could you overclock it with these parts:
Mobo: ASUS Z170-P LGA 1151 Intel
Cpu cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K

  1. well I would say 4.5GHz should be doable, that board is not the best for overclocking, but as long as you mind the VRM/motherboard temps and keep voltages below 1.3V everything should be fine

    Just understand that overclocking is never a sure thing. You may be able to get to 4.5GHz or even higher. On the flip side, you may not get past 3.51GHz. It's very much a chip lottery.
