You will not see a difference at all in games. The best thing to do is leave it. To get 4.2Ghz you will need a huge amount of more voltage, thus creating high temps, far more power draw and possibly some issues.

C1E - Disable

Set multi to 22 and adjust BCLK to accomodate...

CPU Core - 1.35 or so

QPI/DRAM Core - 1.30v set manually to limit it from overvolting..

QPI Link should be 2x to 2.5x your DRAM Frequency, so around 3200 - 3500

I recommend setting all your voltages manually to the default value, this will keep them from fluctuating...

No, {Auto} voltages have a tendency to over compensate for change of freq, so your voltage may be all over the place.

Asus has a utility that should give you the readings of your voltage.. Asus PC Probe figure out what your voltages load windows at, then set them manually in your bios to keep them from jumping around..

Some bios' actually show you the default voltage next to the Auto, I cant make out the pics you uploaded, they are too small..
