Default Overclocking question

I have an i7 920, just for kicks wanted to overclock it a little to 3.0 so I increased the BLCK frequency to 150 which put the cpu speed to 3.0. The temp for the cpu is around 42c or 107F on idle.Iis this ok? I tried putting my freq up to 160 but I got a overclock fail any clues? I left the voltages btw all the same at auto seeing as it was a light overclock. Um any other advice would be appreciated. I did notice that when I booted up though it was faster.

[CPU] Intel Core i7 920 @ 2.66 [MOBO] ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 [GPU] EVGA GeForce GTX 260 SCE 896MB 620MHz/216 core [RAM] G.Skill 6GB DDR3 1333 7-7-7-18 [HD] WD Cav Black 640GB 7200RPM [DRIVE] Samsung DVD/CD burner [PSU] OCZ 700w [MONITOR] LG 1080p, 1920x1080 23" 2ms GTG Widescreen LCD [KEYBOARD] Saitek Eclipse Blue [CASE] Antec 902[OS] Windows Vista 64bit Home Prem.

Default Re: Overclocking question

I would recommend putting the voltages to a set number. As the computer will overcompensate on the voltages if you're overclocking. This will cause unnecessarily high temperatures.
