Default i5 2500k

Looking to go to a 2600k or 2700k, if it is worth it. Chip did 4.6 easy on a corsair H70 with the MSI board. Forget voltages(never high as I am paranoid as hell) as it has been over a month since it has even been on.Never got to use it enough with the last case to even try for higher.

I got mine stable to 5.1 on an H70. was uncomfortable (mid to high 80s, low 90s on one core but only for a second or 2), but working just fine. just nudge up the power bit by bit to get it stable without bursting into flames.
