Just installed my first cooler. Now what?

Nov 1, 2015
Hi everyone, I've been meaning to get an aftermarket cooler and try out overclocking for some time now, and yesterday I finally did it. I taped most of it and took a bunch of pictures as well, here's the link to the post about it:

I haven't done any overclocking yet since I'm still pretty much in the dark, I know my motherboard is decent for it (Gaming 5). Should I do some bench tests and record my baseline first? What would be a safe target clock for

-i5 4690k
-MSI Gaming 5
-212 Evo

Let me know what you think of everything! I'm guessing a lot of users that browse this sub also fold, what kind of improvement in PPD/work units can I expect? Thanks!
