83 is too high for anything that will actually run at high load imo. I tend to aim for 70 regardless of chip.
I mean I have my work PC running at 80 on load, but I don't give a **** about it ^-^
Not to mention, it's often said most human's can't easily tell the performance difference between a 10% OC difference without benchmarking, so dropping from 5 to 4.7 you're unlikely to see a difference (though there will be a small one ofc)
