that a very nice rig youve got there especially with watercooling you could most probably get to 4.8 - 5.0 ghz easily just check for stablility, once youve overclocked it download prime 95 to put your cpu to maximum stress, if you get blue screens then just increase your voltage, try to stay below 1.4v, then download cpu z and cpu z hardware monitor use the monitor watch your temps.

Goodluck :)
