On my H80 before it died I got mine up to 4.5ghz easy. Donno how your chip and loop stack up to the H80, or if your mobo can push an FX8xxx that hard, but 4ghz is a reasonable goal assuming you have better cooling than my poor backup CM212 evo

Put a fan on the Vrm section and if possible the back side of the motherboard to help keep the socket and vrm temps down. Otherwise, you still have a about 10c of headroom on the Package temp.

I use a 80 mm on my VRM section and it helps. From what I've seen the VRM and Nb area of those Msi 970 boards run hot so any active cooling will help.
