It managed to OC my 8600k to 4.9 w/ 1.26v which seems to be stable with prime95(69°-75° max 85), in-game low 60's.

I also tried 4.8 and the lowest voltage I tested was 1.10v and it was stable but I think I could have lowered the voltage more.(62°-70° max 75).

Should I do the 4.9 or 4.8?

Tested both for around 2 hrs

You could do turbo overclocking like I do. I have my 9900K at 5.0 two cores, 4.9 four cores, and 4.8 eight cores. It's plenty fast and the processor stays cooler.

You could do 5.0 with two cores, 4.9 with four, and 4.8 with six. It takes extra testing. It should run fine.
