Default Overclocked my i7 870

Overclocked my i7 870 to 4.2Ghz. Don't have time to run a stress test but I haven't had any blue screens yet. And I've had it this way for about a week now. Pretty exciting stuff!

I need to do quite a few tests. I'm not happy with the temps but it's okay for now. Need to revisit the BIOS.
