  1. Honestly it's hard to say, but it's like 90% of i7-6700k can reach 4.5Ghz no problem. 4.8Ghz and beyond is what silicon lottery used to sell. Also validating via CPU ID is easy, you can have unstable overclock and still succeed in validation. I can validate 4.9Ghz at 1.4V but it fail Realbench.

    I have verified it to be stable, but isn't 1.285V a pretty low voltage? It took my 6600k like 1.375V to get 4.5GHz...

  3. I7-6700k is better binned cheap for one. I also have mine at 4.5Ghz 1.285V, 4.6Ghz at 1.3V and 4.7Ghz at 1.33V. then in order to get it stable I need 1.39V at 4.8Ghz and 1.46V for 4.9Ghz.

  4. What would your max comfortable temp be for yours?

    Well I'm using 4.7Ghz set up for daily usage, I never broke 75C on Prime95 at around 23C room temp. I consider this to be my own sweetspot. I saw 85C on 1.46V and I stopped, not much use for 4.9Ghz apart from bragging rights. But normal for daily use most people stay at 1.35V and under.

    Here's my validation on unstable 4.9Ghz at 1.425V. Wasn't stable until it reached 1.46V which is too high. https://valid.x86.fr/ynn1fk

  6. I have a Corsair H110i hooked up to mine. I run a 4.6 OC at I think around 1.23v and my temps don't go above 54 degrees. I have achieved a lot higher overclocks with this chip, getting up to 5.0, but I had to give it a lot of juice and the temps were more around 78 to 82 under load. This is "ok," but for day to day use, I'd rather run it lower and cooler.
