85??? I'd be afraid of going that high, at least on a regular basis. For SB I'd try to stick right around 70C max, maybe 72C being acceptable.

The stock turbo multiplier on the 2500k is 37, so you don't exactly need to overclock to get there. 4.0ghz should not be a problem on the stock cooler until you get a better alternative and you might not even need to change the vcore to get there depending on your chip. Good luck and have fun!

Lol @ asking for rep after you just asked for help.

ND14 is better then h70, but the h70 doesn't have problems with ram clearance which is nice.

I'd have to say 4ghz with stock (remember 2500k = no HT = less heat) and 5ghz + with H70

i smell a fanboy...everyone knows the sb is good..no need to compare old hardware to latest hardware...compare to the upcoming bulldozer. you might wanna repharse that until we see the results of the bulldozer.

@mexer lol, thanks for stating the obvious.... and no, AMD does't SUCK! you do.
Besides... sleepergsr is right... Bulldozer is coming out... Likely to stomp on the sandy bridge.
@rainmaker regardless of it not having HT... it's not just the heat... it's the voltages too.
From what I learned, Intel does't take voltages too well!
