Depends on the game, the gpu, etc… But you could even probably get worse performance of a missed overclock. When you pass from 4.5 to 4.7 if you make it by increasing the values of the voltages a lot and generating a lot of heat you are probably crippling the boost frecuencies, and setting the cpu in tempertature throtling. To have more data, what are your temps while gamming?, what gpu you use? But in my oppinion the fans of the cpu cooler working at max rpms is a very bad sign.
