Start by doing some reading here:
i7 Overclocking Guide

4.2 to 4.4 may be a bit high for a 24/7 clock with air cooling. 4.0 should be an obtainable goal (depending upon your cpu) on air without too much heat placed on your cpu.

Read the guide and start moving it up towards 4.0 always watching your temps while stress testing.

Turn off Speedstep
Set the cpu Vcore to 1.25625v
Set the QPI/DRAM voltage to 1.31250
Set the BCLK to 200Mhz
Set the UCLK to 3200Mhz
Set hte DRAM to 1600Mhz
Set the QPI Link Data Rate to the lowest setting available (I think it'll be like 7000 or something)

That should boot fine. When it does, run LinX for an hour and make sure it's stable.
If it's stable, start lowering the QPI/DRAM and Vcore voltages. Get them as low as you can while still passing LinX.

I put the settings and when i run linx it says passed with no errors i started lowering the Vcore and the QPI but the cpu speed started droping.
With the settings you gave me i hit 4.0ghz
and what about ram i dont have to change anything ?
Thanks!!!

Just get the rest of the system stable first, we'll do the ram later.

If you want to hit 4.2Ghz, set the CPU Ratio setting to 21. You'll need to raise the Vcore a little though.
Start at 1.29375v to be safe, that should be plenty to keep it stable.

Then run LinX, if it's stable decrease the Vcore, run LinX again, etc

edit: also, disable turbo mode and C1E support

You can see the turbo mode setting in the last picture you posted, at the bottom.

Turbo mode should still be there, even when the AI tweaker is set to Manual.

weird...ah well. No biggie your board must disable it in Manual mode after all.

Well that's about it, work down your voltages if you can and keep an eye on your temps while you're doing the LinX runs. You temps shouldn't ever be much higher than ~80c (with this particular OC)
