He hit 4.4GHz with a stock cooler, but I didn't see what mobo he had:

Here's one with 5.1GHz and the Maximus (not sure if it was air or water for the 5.1) (page 4 starts the OC)

So 4.4GHz looks pretty good.

Hi kianhow,

Look at http://www.overclock.net/intel-motherboards/947485-official-asus-maximus-iv-extreme-owners.html. It's the official thread for that motherboard at Overclock.net. They posted lots of different results with the same CPU you have and give you detailed information of what BIOS version to use, speeds, voltages, etc.

Apart from that I would say that 3.8 Ghz is a safe speed for that cpu/mobo/cooler combination and you don't really need much more than that. You could also try to go up to 4.4 which seems to be well handled by those components (of course it will depend greatly on the enviroment conditions where the PC is in. The cooler the better).

Cheers,
