On a Sandy / Ivy platform an overclock isn't a "requirement" by any standards. Every game that has some decent programming would be able to deliver playable frames per second on a stock quad core Ivy Bridge, pretty much because they have to - nothing beats those CPUs in performance/clock at the moment.
(The same can't be said if you're using an AMD CPU.)
