Default Core i7 920 overclocking question

Whats the highest you can push this thing? I've heard of people pushing it from 2.6ghz to 4.2ghz just with air cooling, can you push it higher with liquid cooling? Whats it's max?

thanks

I have seen 5.2 GHz, with hyperthreading turned off. With hypwrthreadin on, the highest safe overclock I've seen is 4.8GHz.

No offense, but if you have to ask such a question, you probably do not know enough about overclocking to get it that high safely.
