i just build a new rig and i would love to OC it, but like my post name i am new to oc'ing

my build:
CPU: Intel i5-6600k
Mobo: Z170 asus hero viii
GPU: asus strix 1080
RAM: corsair vengeance led 16gig 2666mhz
CPU Cooling: Corsair hydro 115i with 2x Corsair ML 140 fans on it
PSU: corsair RM750x(new one)
case: corsair carbide 540 with in the front 3x corsair HD 120 fans and in the back 1x corsair AF 140 fan
HDD: seagate 2tb
SSD: samsung evo 850 500gig

it is running stable @
4.6Ghz and bios volt = 1.300(idle around 1.312 and full load around 1.264 - 1.280) it runs around 50°(sometimes 45° - 52°)
i did only change core multiplier to 46

is this possible to go even higher and keep it safe ? never had blue screen or crash(trying to prevent this aswell)

thx

I would up the llc slightly to hold voltage closer to 1.3 whenunder load and then bump the multiplier up to 47x and see if it is still stable. Your temps are plenty good so you do not have any concern there yet.

Your vcore is safe up to at least 1.4 volts so I'm thinking you can get another tick of overclock out of the CPU. But that one more tick might take a lot more vcore than you think.

My 6600k is stable at 4.6 ghz at the same voltage as you but I have to go up to about 1.37 to get 4.7. I'm guessing 4.6 will by your sweet spot but you will be able to get 4.7 out of it with safe voltage if you want.

so maybe i should start going for a full out try ?
and set Vcore at 1.375 ? and set multiplier on 48 and hope it works ? if i get crash, lower to 47 ? and if i still get crash go for vcore around 1.390 ?
if it should still crash then i probly gonna go for my current stable build.

On my Asus LLC level 6 holds idle vcore under load at the same as idle. 7 raises it .032v and 8 raises .058v. So keep that in mind when adjusting voltage. I idle at .032v under what it's at at load instead of having vdroop.
