RE: Tier 5ish compontent check + how do I trim the budget a bit
1) It depends on how crazy you want to get. Some people recommend 8-24 hours of Prime 95 testing before cranking up the multiplier. If the OC genie values are getting the job done, you can stick with them.

I like to run "Real Temp - CPU"'s built-in burn-in test that links to Prime-95. It will warm up the chip, and test the temperatures at different loads. It may differ for Haswell, but as long as none of them exceed 80-85 Celsius, you should be good to go. I'd look up a Haswell-specific guide though, as the temps and optimal motherboard settings vary from chip-to-chip.
