Sandy Bridge i7 2600k

I built a new PC a few months back and just started working on overclocking it. It is an Intel Core i7 2600k running on a Gigabyte P67-UD4-B3 motherboard and 4 GB G.Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600 RAM. The processor is amazingly fast even at stock speeds (3.40Ghz). It is a quad core with hyper threading; in windows it shows up as 8 CPU cores. It tears through any processing job or game running on the computer. A lot of people have been getting these chips overclocked up to 5Ghz and higher. So far I have only been able to get it to run stable at 4.5Ghz, but am hoping it can reach 5Ghz.

Some picture of the upgraded computer are below, it looks very much the same, but don't let that fool you.  The core components, the motherboard, CPU and RAM were all replaced. The old parts which were taken out have been re-used in another computer and it is currently running iDeneb a Mac OSX Leopard clone and being used as a music server.
