MSI Z270 OC question

I know i could search the internet for this answer but i only really accept new updated answers from here, so heres my question.

I have:
MSI Z270 TOMAHAWK mobo
I7 7700k CPU
Dominator Platinum 16GB DDR4 3200mhz (8gbx2)
MSI GTX 1060 X Gaming 6GB VR Ready
EVGA SuperNOVA 750 B1, 80+ BRONZE 750W
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 2x 120mm PWM Fan
KINGSTON 240GB ssd now
Western Digital 750GB hdd 7200rpm
Windows 10 latest build

how much could i overclock the cpu to a stable 1080p ultra gaming rig?
im looking to play PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS in ultra detail at 1080p 60+ fps
i launched up PUBG and without an overclock im getting 40fps >_> csgo i get hundreds easy.
i know the game is still early access and bad optimisation is in play here the thing is this is an i7 >_< should be fine playing this game. i also play rust alot.

heres a list of games i play you can even add me on steam if you like and have time to play games with me.

overall i just want an enjoyable playing experiance with 60+ fps on all games, tempature is not much of a problem here my house is always shitting cold. (pardon my language.)

    No one really know with the 7700k, really depends on the chip. Most people are deliding and replacing the TIM since intel did a really bad job of it and getting a drop of around 20*c max temp in some cases.

    If you get a bad chip, probably max speed will be 4.8Ghz. With a delid and tim replacement you could probably get 5.0-5.1GHz.

    Ive been thinking of doing a z270/7700k build this week but am going to hold off and see if the new coffee lake gets dropped next month.

  2. yeah ive seen some people get around 5ghz but thats pretty huge numbers.
    if you decide to run a z270/7700k update me on your findings, a stable oc would be nice, i play vid games about 20/6 so yeah, i put my pc to work.
    do you even think that the default clock is good enough to run most games? or a slight oc should be in play?
    EDIT: is my standalone ssd good enough or should i get a m.2 ssd for the os and use my kingston for games? (thinking about updating to 500gb samsung 850 evo)
