Hey guys so i overclocked my i7 920 to 4.0ghz and now i am wondering if these temps are good enough, The hottest core goes to 79C max in prime 95 never reaches 80C, I am using a hyper 212 evo with push pull setup and my cpu voltage is 1.33v the i7 is a D0 920 with a x20 multiplier and 1.35v for the qpi voltage everything else is auto here is a pic of my temps in idle and here is my cpuz.

I've found 3.8 GHz to be the sweet spot on my 920. 4 GHz with HT off required much more voltage and ran much hotter than 3.8 GHz with HT on. Try 19x200 3.8 GHz with HT on and a lower voltage around 1.28 v.

I would say change to 190 x 21
I would also recommend lowering qpi/vtt to 0.05 less than vcore.

I would try lowering the vcore and get HT on.

I also recommend 21 multiplier vs 20 or 19.

Additionally, you should lower your voltage to somewhere around 1.25v unless your chip is not stable at those clocks.
