OC guide for i7 6700k / MSI Z170A GAMING M3 / Corsair vengeance LED 16 GB DDR4 3200

Hello guys.
A couple of days ago I bought the following combo:
i7 6700k / MSI Z170A GAMING M3 / Corsair vengeance LED 16 GB DDR4 3200
It was an upgrade for my i5 3470 / GA Z77M D3H / 16 GB Kingston DDR3 1600. So at default clocks I´m already seeing a huge performance improvement. BTW, I'm already using the XMP profile for the memos.
But the idea when I upgraded to a K processor was to do overclock. So I have 2 questions for you:

1)Do you have any guide available for the MSI BIOS? I updated it to the latest version but there are a lot of options that I do not know what they do.

2)Any decent guide to perform some OC on the i7 6700k? I'm air cooling it with a custom Zalman, and I think I should be able to get it to 4.6 very easily.

Thanks in advance for your help.

  1. Here is a youtube vid of your setup and how to OC.

    Your not going to achieve the same results on Air as you would with an AIO water cooled setup as is in the vid. It will depend on your temperatures as to how far you can go.
