You should be able to hit 4.2 comfortably. 4.5 would be pretty easy too

Also, the only way to truly know how much you can overclock is to try.

Yea but I don't wanna make it like really high and mess stuff up. between 4.2-4.5 ghz would be good enough for me.

I don't think that is how you are suppose to overclock. You don't approach top to bottom. It's the other way round.

But if you really want to do that, I'm sure your board has some automatic profiles. Use that, then lower your voltage settings until its stable.

4.2 seems like a sweet spot to me.
