Overclocking relies on several factors. While heat dissipation is only one factor. But a major one. Overclocking also depends on your CPU batch and the speed of your RAM and your motherboard. Some CPU's of the same model has different overclock capabilities depending on the batch of manufacturing. Some mobo's have the capability to change multiple factors other than just front side bus (FSB)speed. Overclocking friendly mobo's allow changes to the voltage to the CPU and RAM, because applying a slightly higher voltage can sometimes enable a more stable overclock. Also ventilation out of the case is important, so you should also get case fans on the back of your case to get hot air out; and have a fan in the front of your case to let cool air in. It is impossible to tell you accurately how fast your overclock can get by just knowing the cooler model. There are sites which tell you what speeds other people have got and with what equiptment. But be mindful that you may not be able to attain the same speed.

I use a coolermaster 212 on my 7600K and it is overclocked to 4.5gig with no problem at all.

Do understand that there is NO safe overclock. All overclocking entails some degree of risk. I have a rule; Do not overclock with parts you cannot afford to replace.
