You shouldn't have any bottleneck with a 2500K. If you have the cooler for it go ahead and overclock that baby to over 4 GHz.

yeah it definitely won't bottleneck it.
but I still suggest you overclock it to at least 4ghz, and depending on which cpu cooler, you can definitely hit higher depending on your chip.

You won't have a bottleneck, but as LuminatX said, try for 4-4.2 overclock. 2500k's can do this easily.
