    i7-6850k how high to OC?

    I just put in a 6850k and I was pretty surprised. I am running 20c idle, and 40s with load in prime95. This is OCed at 4.2ghz with 1.2v. My 6800k took 1.25 volts to get the same oc and was easily 10c hotter. Is there any reason to push this or not? How high to 6850's get usually?
