Thanks for you time!
For my personal setup, per my observation of general computing (excluding benchmarks):
4.3ghz- lowest OC where I notice a difference from stock.
4.5ghz- next level that I notice a difference from 4.3
4.6ghz- notable from previous OC's performance, and temp rise notable as well but still not concerning.
4.7-4.8- no notable difference from previous perf, but here temps start getting toasty at load.
haven't gone higher. also with each step, notable =\= significant. Just that I can tell.
