So I pop up every few years to ask advice, just got a new crazy workstation for C4D 3D rendering and 4K / VR video work.

I got a great deal on a barebones sytem with the above components. Just changing the core multiplier to 42 and leaving everything else auto still gives me rock solid stability and temps just under 60c under full load. Im looking at 25c idle.

I am used to overclocking on Asus and MSI boards though, how should I proceed to push this chip on the gigabyte? What are good voltage ranges and anything else I should be tweaking in BIOS? I'm guessing I can get up to 4.5 ghz, maybe more as it looks very stable and cool right now without touching much.
