All good answers here. If you are looking to overclock for gaming purposes only, there isn't much gain above 4 ghz anyways, unless your running multiple videocards. And any sandy will do 4 ghz without any issues. But if none of you know much about overclocking, research and go slowly and make sure the Cooling is adequate. Quick and dirty test for me on intel processors is intel burn test. Set it to maximum and run while monitoring temperatures. Set it for longer runs once you think you are where you want to be.
