YES GET A GOOD COOLING HEATSINK
I have seen a lot of overclocked i5-2500Ks to around 4.5GHz with the same heat sink that I have chosen running at idle 36-40C and load 65-70C. I don't plan to push past 4.0GHz, so I don't think it will be a problem, but I will definitely look into it. I have also considered the Noctua NH-D14 as a possible upgrade in the future if needed.
EDIT: Thank you for the link DragonSlayer. Yeah, I don't think I'm read to go into the BIOS and start messing with voltages etc to overclock it. I would probably start off using TriXX and Smart Doctor or some CPU software overclocker, like the one you have given me. Just to be safe you know?
