6850k overlocking over xmp (experienced help needed)

Hi. Recently I've decided to push my system a bit further than it is.

At the moment, I'm using 6850K i7 @4.0Ghz via XMP profile for HyperX Predator 2x16 @3000Mhz
The mobo is Asus Strix X99 Gaming, NZXT Kraken x62 for cooling.

I'm wondering if I should overclock my CPU a bit more over the XMP profile and will it bring any performance boost for games?

Xmp profile changes bclk size to 125 (it's the case with x99 boards):

78423

When I'm changing multiplier in bios to 35, it raises the voltage above 1.4V (I guess I don't need that voltage at all for 4375 mhz overclock).

Any tips would be much appreciated!

Are you strictly wanting to overclock the cpu? Or memory also? I prefer not to use xmp. I just manually test and adjust.

i'm not overclocking memory, just using xmp for adjusting its native speed. and bclk size it makes (125) is the best stable solution in this case according to broadwell-e traits. Just wondering what my further steps should be
