CPU and memory frequency are the biggest factors. I could have my CPU overclocked to 5.5GHz but have 120 GFlops because my memory is running at 1333MHz. The higher the better.

Say I want to run safely at 4.5ghz what would I need to up in bios for RIVE?

Most people change their CPU Strap (BCLK freq.) to 125Mhz, and leave everything else the same (That's what I have right now, and it's been stable folding for 3 hours thus far), and it seems to works, and that gets you 4.75Ghz. That'd be the easiest route, from what I've seen anyway.

No need to boost volts or anything?

really 4.7 with stock volts?

i said auto......that means it will try to set it by itself

I never use auto, it adds a lot of volts , very unnecessary.

No suggestions about my problem? I'm really stuck in place there

Total noob to all this but:

1. If I overclock my i7-3820 does it constantly run at that rate? Or can I just set max to like 4.5Ghz or something and it not always be running that speed/producing that much heat. Just so it will render video's faster or run programs more smooth when necessary.
2. Is my cooling ok for overclocking? My CPU is running about 32C. From as low as 26c to the highest I've seen was 40c. This is all with lowest fan settings around 1300RPM which it can go almost twice that.
