I've run at 4.7GHz since day one. If you are going to be encoding UHD 59.94p 10bit, you may want to stick in the 4.5GHz-4.6GHz range.
I get high heat when doing 10bit UHD 59.94 encodes in 4.7GHz.

Make sure you have really good airflow through your case and a water cooler. I have the Corsair 110. If you have a big enough case that can handle a 360mm radiator on top, get the Corsair H150i.

Make sure you have a PSU of high enough wattage and efficiency to support overclocking. This is important. Low efficiency PSU's will get you every time.
You can look at a PSU calculator and get an idea.
I'm running an 850wt PSU. The big draw is the overclocking and 1080ti.

If you are not familiar with overclocking, use the turbo mode presets from your motherboard manufacturer.

Good luck.
