Thanks for any help!!
Keep in mind you'll be limited by the heat from IB being TIM not soldered. So, without delidding you should be able to get to 4.5ghz while remaining solid on temps and decent voltage. Anything higher than that is luck of the draw and if you delid.
Don't worry though, 4.5 is more than enough if you plan on it for 24/7. Once you find a stable voltage for 4.5 work your way up if you want. 5ghz is hard to reach while staying around 1.4v. With a great chip you can reach it but I doubt it with just a h100i over a custom loop.
So, go for 4.5 GHz for now. Once you get that stable, anything more is just for fun. Personally I'd be happy with that. If you aren't, push for 4.7-4.8 while watching temps and voltage. You'll find the sweet spot eventually. It's a process. Always remember that. That's the fun of overclocking.
Or you could just pop it to 4.5ghz and 1.4v and call it a day. But that not efficient and where's the fun in that?
Goodluck with the overclock and feel free to ask any questions if you have them!
