I have a 2600K with that I set to turbo up to 4.2. Stock voltage, never breaks 50ºCm and really silent, that said, the silence is thanks to the huge Coolermaste V8.

I can't use the first RAM channel due to the size, so I am hoping everything is OK with me using the second set of channels (1/3 instead of 0/2). Also man, that backplate was a pain to install. Anyway, I don't think I'll have any trouble keeping this thing cool, provided I got the thermal paste on correctly. (I watched a couple vids. I think I may have put on too much, but I'm not sure. I hope it squished all the way out to the edges though :S)
