Finally got around to starting my overclocking journey on this computer :p

So far the only things I've touched was the cpu voltage and multiplier, after I find a good stable point with those, what else can I start tweaking for performance gains?

Your OC is good, I suggest you to stresstest your CPU for a few hours with Prime95, (Small FTT's and Blend modes, Small FTT for max temperatures and blend for ram and cpu testing).
If your OC stable and you've tested it for about 6 hours (Both modes for 6 hours) then everything is probably alright, watch your temps, Dont go higher than 90c degrees (i would not go past 80 if i overclock my CPU) and 1.45Volt on the CPU.

Oh and Check every hour or so if your CPU is not overheating.

If you fail the stresstest or your temperatures are higher than 90c degrees then lower your OC lets say to 4.6
