I overclocked my i5-2500k to 4.2GHz by following this video, its very informative I recommend watching it.
I use Noctua NH-D14 though any decent cooler would keep your temps balanced, the i5-2500k is an OC beast, I recommend you to get smooth copper contact base, because those direct contact heat pipes can be tricky and could trap air bubbles, so get a cooler that has smooth contact base.
