Sell that CPU on eBay, you still could get a good chunk of money for it.
Next step? Order a 950, basically you'd be able to do the same as with a Presler Extreme Edition; 300x17 on water, something you couln't do with a 3.73ghz on water.
Bottom line, get rid of that Single Core Extreme Edition and go Double Core Presler, they oveclock sky-high w/o a huge (1.55+) Vcore.
If you still want to keep the 3.73ghz, as I said chances of a (300x14) 4.2ghz is the most common on those CPUs. Best Performance overall would be with a 950 @ 5.1ghz.
