You're welcome and yes it was.

You guys are giving me the upgrade bug but, the Minister of Finance has informed me that I can wait for a while longer

I can feel your pain Dave I am not sure whether I have been over-clocked or not.I asked my son to and he never told me what he did. Going on my CPU-z Screen and my system stats hopefully one of you guru's could tell me if there is any improvements available...Thanks

Thanks for the sympathy, flowers and on occation certain metals seem to ease the upgrade path timeline

You need to open CPUZ when you system is running hard or run a testing app like Prime95.
CPU - Stress Test with Prime95

Your snip is showing your CPU speed at idle, which will be the same OC'ed or not.

Open CPUZ, then open Prime95 long enough to get the snip then you can shut it down.
It's always a good idea to run Real Temp at the same time, don't let the CPU core temp go above 70C.

Welcome to OC'ing.

My first ever OC! The "max" temp was while running Prime95 for 3hrs. If I were a smart one I would have not closed Prime95 before I took the snip...

How does it look to the "Pro's"?
I am just going for 24/7 use, Not for top speed....Yet

Edit: I will re-run Prime95 again later when I have more time to let it run for awhile.
Edit2: I didn't close Prime95 I just stopped it and minimized it!! I added the snip!

My vCore voltage was 1.380v at stock speeds, and you've overclocked an i7 to 4.5GHz @ 1.2v

Ya, that's good, really good.

Did you have to do anything besides bump the multiplier?

LB is right, it isn't fair...
