Default overclocking with the AMD FX 4100

I've managed 4.2Ghz with the stock cooler, temps in low 40's C, however it seems slower overclocked than normally, could this mean I need more voltage? Or increase bus speeds?

You're idle is probably in the low 40s but I can guarantee your load isn't unless you're playing with your PC out in the snow. It may seem slower because it is possibly throttling due to heat.
