Overclocking my 8600k with the hyper 212 evo air cooler

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone has some safe recommendations for a safe overclock that won't overheat my cpu. I have an 8600k on the asus strix z370e motherboard. I'm running a hyper 212 air cooler which ik isn't the best. And recomendations on a safe overclock for most chips. Ik that each chip is different.

  1. A few questions for you:

    1) What are the rest of your PC specs?
    2) Are you gaming on this PC or something else?
    3) What are the current temps and clocks of your CPU and RAM?
  2. every single chip is different so its down to the quality of the silicon your processor was made from which is random.

    My personal opinion is to go as far as you can sticking to recommended voltages and temperatures.

    High voltages are the main killers of chips so be careful.

    Any temperature below 75 is great when overclocking.

    The rest of my system is a gigabyte windforce 1070ti and 16gb of ddr4 2400mhz ram with a evga 80+ bronze power supply. I am gaming on this pc but I'm also streaming a bit and I use music production programs and Photoshop. And my for my current temps. The highest I saw was 89c when stress testing it with prime 95 on the small ffts setting for about 5 minutes and 60c on the blend test
  4. i believe the blend test is the most accurate to represent actual temperature. Although, 89 is quite high i would try some games to and monitor how hot it gets.
  5. What do you have your vCore set to and what clock speed?
