    I have achieved a nice little overclock on the AMD 3.8/4.2 quad 5800k at 4.8ghz. The motherboard is an MSI FM2 A85XA-G65. I got this on the stock heatsink fan.
    The settings are 102x44 and volts at 1.5.
    I did not run run it long. Temp seemed to stay a 61c. I believe this temp is ok by AMD standards. Better cooling might get me more!
    This is the highest I have gotten. And it booted into Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon just fine.
    Sorry about lack of detail. I got excited and had to post.

    Temperature shouldn't be an issue unless you increase the voltage, in which case you'd need increased cooling.

    Sorry, I made a typo. The overclock is 4.48ghz not 4.8.

    Very nice! What have you tried to benchmark?
    I'm curious how it affect performance in real-world scenarios?

    I did a little research about some linux benchmark software. Ubuntu has some that may do it. So, perhaps Mint does too.
    Also, I have been craving a water cooler.

    I was thinking more of HD video, streaming, gaming, compiling, rendering, etc.
    Do you notice a major difference in those day-to-day processes?

    Boot seemed faster. Opening files seemed faster. I didn't run any games or videos yet.

    Oh man, don't make the headlines with "Man fried by water cooling in computer"

    I have wanted to do this for years. I got to admit no sane person would want water in electronics.

    Agreed, I know its not as bad as it sounds, but I tend to want my computers lasting 10+ years.
    The worst that can happen on my machines is a fan dies or a hard drive fails.
    In the future when I have all SSD drives, the only thing that can fail is a fan.

    I got good equipment. Not top of the line. Still, the Processor, ram, video card is capable of more. I think water cooling has a better chance than air of keeping temps in line. I hope to crank her up and still be safe and secure.
    I might have got out cheaper by buying a more powerful components. But for me, this is fun. That and games.

    Today I installed my Corsair Hydro Series H110 Extreme Performance water cooler. Took awhile as the mounting hardware was a bit of a fuss. I was disappointed at first, because the machine would not power up. Almost as if the power supply was dead. Strange as only one case fan would power up sort of. I reseated and jiggled a few things and it fired up.
    At stock settings it seemed maybe 3 to 5c higher. But .... I over clocked to 4.53 (103 x 44) (voltage 1.5). and I am running at 20c cooler than I was on air at 4.48. Yippee!

    The stats are off it seems on the Inex/CPU stats but the 4.7ghz is about right. The voltage should be 1.5125 and the multiplier should be 45. Sometimes Inex shows the wrong clock speed. Or maybe I am doing or reading this wrong.

    Awesome! Glad you were able to overclock a higher and still keep the temps down.
    Success!
