Unless youre ok with running at higher temps like over 70-75 you will hit the thermal limits at around 4.5ish. now if you actually got a good cooler you could hit 4.8 no problem before 70*c

Isn't required for what? he never said what he was doing so you gave a half truth. In gaming your 95% correct but in video creation your wrong.

as i said and cbr approved that anything above 4.5ghz is not worth it.in fact 4.2ghz is also a good overclock.500r is a great case with plenty of airflow,you will do fine.
