Estimating performance of CPU/Cooler combination.

I appreciate that, when overclocking, a decent cooler is required, to maintain stable performance. The more you overclock, the more cooling is required.
Are there any "benchmarks", or a means of estimating, the likely performance of a particular CPU / Cooler combination, or is it a question of making a sensible choice of cooler, and "see what you get"?

I think the simplest way to get some idea of a cooler you are interested in cooling ability's is to Google it's name followed by review. Or post a question on a more component orientated website like Bit-Tech,there is not much that has not been tested to the limits and posted on there.
I have my i5 2500K running at 4.5Ghz and I am using Antec Kuhler H2o 920, I did quite a bit of research myself before settling on this cooler and it does what it says on the tin.
I would like at some point to go fully water cooled but have yet to dip my big toe in but I am certainly aiming to try.
