  1. It could be too much or just right.

    It all depends on if you win the silicon lottery.
  2. Best answer
    ASRock’s Extreme4 line are decent overclockers but not the high end. I wouldnt expect 5 but you might get lucky.
  3. How high you can OC a I5-8600K is determined by your luck in getting a good chip.

    as of 12/01'2017
    What % of I5-8600k chips can oc
    at a agressive vcore of 1.4 or so and delidded
    4.9 98%
    5.0 84%
    5.1 65%
    5.2 38%
    5.3 13%

    For a stock, non delidded chip, expect less.

    And... I would not spend a lot on water cooling when a good cooler like the Noctua NH-D15s will do the job at half the price.
