Sounds decent, the problem will come when increasing vcore therefore increasing heat output, identify which is your board vrm temp in whatever temp monitor software you use and see if can increase your multiplier in small increments. Only touch voltage as a last resort.

Identify your current bios then compare it to the latest on that site, there should be a list of improvements and fixes and exactly what they are for. Decide if they relate to what you are trying to achieve.

You will hit the wall around 4.2ghz on that H60 if it still has a stock fan on it.

If that mobo doesn't have a UEFI bios then it will never support it.
Is you mobo a TA970 or TA970XE?
If it is TA970 then I wouldn't oc in it. TA970 is a low quality 4+1 power phase.
If it is TA970XE then you ae good to go. TA970XE is a very high quality 4+1 power phase.

In case anyone ever does a search and comes across this old post, don't place much credence in it. The two boards are exactly the same save for slight connector differences and better audio on the XE. Power phase and heat sinks are exactly the same 4+1 setup.

I had both mobos and the XE has better quality VRM then the normal.
