There is no reason to overclock the 2700x as you allready get as good performance as you will be able to get out of it when stock. You can get to around 4.2 ghz if you have a cooler. 4.1 is very achievable. 


If stock presicion boost 2 will manage the cores quite well and at least 1 of them will run at 4.35 ghz. That is why there is no reason to overclock it. Especially when you are only thinking about doing 4.1 ghz

You can overclock it a fair bit but i have not tested one myself. It will also depend on silicon lottery but I think 4.1 should be doable with higher temps. I do not think 4.2 or .3 are doable with the stock cooler.

It's pointless.

Yep. Just let precision boost 2 take care of OC on the x series. If it was a non-x there is something tl gain by overclocking. On the X-es there isnt (in almost every application)
