is it worth over clocking my i7 8700k to 4,7 or leave it at 3.7? the turbo boost goes to 4.7 so would it be worth it??

cheers guys
 
I would if your doing an all core OC.

Normal boost
1 core 4.7
2 cores 4.6
3 cores 4.5
4-5 cores 4.4
6 cores 4.3

As you can see the normal boost the more cores that are used the slower the actual boost speed you get.

If you want to get a little crazy you could delid the 8700k, did min a few months back and with cinebench R20 and no AVX offset my temps max out in the low to mid 70's with a 5.1GHz OC
