When you overclock your CPU how many GHz did you overclock to?
Mines 4.2 or 4.1GHz to be exact(factory overclock from alienware high prices though)

4.8 using an NH-D14

Can run 5.2 for benchmarks but it gets too hot and requires too many volts for my taste so I never game/etc above 4.8 (and sometimes 5.2 is touchy and it only likes 5.1.... depends on the day).
