    i7  2600k: What is the recommended OC setting?



      I have built this system and just wonder what would be the recommended settings to overclock the i7 2600k. I do not want to go too high and ruin it or too low to not to take proper advantage of it. I have seen some going to 5.2Ghz and others to 4.4Ghz. This is my system:

      COOLER MASTER HAF 932 case

      ASUS P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 motherboard

      Intel Core i7-2600K

      COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler

      Corsair Gold AX850 PSU

      CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB)

      GTX 470 video card (factory overclocked)


      On the other side, is there anything else that should be overclocked besides the CPU?

      Thanks, Luis
