I just build my first system (core i7 920) and am gradually overclocking my CPU. So far I have it at 3.3ghz and am stress testing my system. Here are the temps so far. You think I may be able to eventually reach 4.0 ghz? I have a ThermalRight TRUE 120 heatsink/fan.
I would just bump up bclk to 191, set vcore to 1.25~1.275 and do stress tests from there. If it passes prime95/IBT/Linx for 1 hour/20runs, drop vcore by two notches, repeat. But thats just me, I'm far too impatient.
