I'm having it run stock on my 4930k as of this moment but I used the XMP profile on the RAM and it's on 3.9ghz.. It's just as fast as my previous 2700k oc'ed to 4.8ghz.
I'll add pictures of my setup when I get back home after work.
I typically only use the bios presets for LN2 use.
For a 24/7 OC I know the limits of my cooling system are around 1.4-1.45V on 6 core CPU's so I target something under that.
For example, I'll set 1.35Vcore and adjust the multiplier up to find where my max OC is on that given voltage, then document temps.
Then I'll bump it up to 1.375 and repeat the process, ending at 1.45V and then choosing the OC that meets what I want for speed and temperature.
