Yes. Overclocking with 2600k's is fairly straight forward. How much you can go depends on your chip more then anything. Average chip could hit around 4.5-4.8 ghz. Or 5 ghz stable if you are lucky.

w/ an rx360 like yoyo said you can slap that cpu up to 5 ghz 24/7 if you can get it stable at reasonable volts (luck of the draw)

Or without an an RX360, as long as your cooling can keep it under 75c, you're good.

If you can find a Noctua d-14 or Thermalright silver arrow air cooler for a good price go for it otherwise I feel the RX360 Kit is better price/performance considering Frozencpu has them goin for 149.99$ :http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...l=g30c321s1310
