Actually you overclock it exatly the same way as a normal i7. The unlocked multi is just for noobs to just wang up high, or for hardcore clockers that are using subzero cooling. For the average enthusiast the 980x brings nothing to the table the 970 doesnt have.
Sooooo long and short of it is you clock it in the same way as a normal i7 dude
