22 socket (max)5 in 6 (83.33%)

42 socket (max)5 in 6 (83.33%)
52 socket (max)5 in 6 (83.33%)
62 socket (max)5 in 6 (83.33%)

The maximum amount of sockets an item can roll with depends on the iLevel of the item. The iLevel is equal to the monster level (mLevel) the item dropped from, the mLevel is equal to the area level (aLevel). Champions will have an mLevel of aLevel+2, Uniques and their minions aLevel+3, and Super Uniques will have a predefined mLevel.
