Is this a good overclock?

So I just wanted to ask some opinions on this. I managed to get my CPU to be stable on 4.6Ghz @ 1.25V. So I just wanted to know if this was good and if I got a good card? I don't know about 4.7 or 4.8 but I know that 4.9Ghz does not work.

4,6 is good for 5820k, you don't really need anything above it, single-threaded performance is already more than enough

I was planning to stay at 4.0 Ghz @ 1.2V but I thought "I want to know how far this can go without hitting 1.3V!"

Leave it @4,6gHz, it should be great

For a six core that pretty good especially @1.25V (atleast as far as Im aware)

Where did I say anything about a GPU, and it's 5820K my CPU. My GPU has +500 Memory Clock and +140 Core Clock.

It happens lol. If you want to push it higher, you may be able to get 4.7 @ 1.3v, even if you don't tho, 4.6 is still quite hefty

Edit:

Haswell tends to hit a wall at around 4.6-4.7 requiring a large jump in voltage. My i5 was a great overclocker up to 4.6, getting it at about 1.25v, 4.7 took 1.32v.

It is fun :)

At the same time though, I don't want to run my max oc. 4.4 it's enough for me. Especially at the voltage I got it stable at. But I'm glad I pushed it and found my upper limit. That extra 300 mHz could come in handy in a few years
