That's up to you. If it works without problems, you might as well leave it as is. Just keep controling the temps.

I have an i7 2600k and regularly overclock it if I'm doing computationally intensive tasks (eg. video encoding). I don't overclock it most of the time. Also, I have a well ventilated case and definitely do not use the stock cooler (see my specs). If you want to overclock I'd strongly recommend a good non stock cooler at ~$30-40. I use HW Monitor when I overclock and the CPU always stays within specs with all 8 threads going flat out. I use my Asus motherboard Turbo mode and don't overclock too hard.

I believe the 3rd and 4th gen Intel i7s run hotter so I'd certainly monitor the core temps and CPU power usage.

However, overclocking may affect your warranty which is puzzling since you pay extra for the "k" overclock capability.

If you can overclock from 3.4g to 4.5g you will have only 1/3 more speed, is it worth it? Maybe there is a problem with the optimisation of your system. One of my pc's has a processor of one third of the power of yours, but with a Samsung 840 pro running well, it opens and runs superbly. Your processor is one of the high end components already.
