This is my hardware

Corsair Dominator DHX+ DDR3 1600MHz 6GB

MSI GeForce GTX 460 1GB PhysX CUDA "Cyclone OC"

Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB

CoolIT VANTAGE A.L.C. CPU Køler Water Cooling


I get a score of 3.426

Result

Could I get more?

Thanks

Read up on overclocking. Read articles, pros and cons, users experiences in overclocking in general, and with similar hardware.

Read, read, and then read some more.

Could you? You may.

Seriously, what he said. Read up. I would do it but my CPU is locked, that and i'd have to build up the courage after what I've read about OC.

Give this a read over - 3 Step Guide To Overclock Your Core i3, i5, or i7 – Updated! | Overclockers

It should give you an idea on what to do.
I only recently OC'd my new setup using the AMD guide on that site and it helped a great deal,that and browsing through old,new and similar threads help.

As for giving you a fail safe OC setting list,well its not really possible as each chip/board etc can have different thresholds.You'll have to spend a good amount of time tweaking and stressing before you'll find your safe limits.

From browsing different threads on different forums i've seen stable overclocks ranging from 3.8 to 4.3GHz if your looking for a ball park figure

And after you've done that, you should be able to get 4.0ghz

Are you looking for an OC to run 24-7 or just to see what you can do with your chip?

The i7 9 chips run hot and with your current cooling I would not run over 3.8 under any kind of a load unless you just want to shorten the lifespan of the that chip and then go with an i7 2600K and run all day at 4.5 on air.
