Will this overclock good?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a few questions
I recently bought a new system :

Rosewill CHALLENGER
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Antec EarthWatts EA-650 GREEN 650W ATX12V
MSI P67A-C43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX
Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost)
Asus HD 5770


I want to overclock my CPU, but the problem is that I am new and I would be using the stock cooler. What would be the best GHz it could go up to for a beginner? Can someone please explain how I would be able to Overclock this without harming it too much. Also, will overclocking it decrease the life of it? I would like to keep this CPU for about 3-4 years.

Thank you all!

EDIT : Yes, I bought the 2500k to give overclocking a go, but it would be a waste if I didn't overclock it, right?
