My System Specs

Default

I don't know if your game will really need that but I think you can easily hit 4.5GHz on stock heatsink. I don't have experience with Intel rigs but I guess you need to follow a review of that cpu and will be explained very clearly, is just a problem of finding the CPU multiplier in BIOS and adjusting to what you need. Keep in mind also that a jump of current of 5% fed to anything electronic will reduce life by 50%. So try to see how much it will go keeping just the default voltage setting. Overclocking is a thing that requires patience, good cooling and can be dangerous, I learnt that myself when I burnt my Duron at 800MHz trying to bump the speed to 850MHz in the middle of the summer!
