I like the looks of that software, but think all OCing should be done from BIOS settings. Just keep watching your temps and keep the v-core volts as low as possible and still stable.

Everything looks good that I see in those screenshots. You have a very good rig!

What is a unsafe temp ?
74c seems pretty high to me considering that 165.2 f :/

That is when under a heavy load from Prime and not bad using an air cooler. I would put a liquid cooler on it

Looking at hit build not many corners were cut except in the cpu cooling department.

The 4770K is not the best for Overclcocking, 4.2 is plenty fast enough for that chip on air.

I personally would select a different cpu cooler if over clocking.

Cooling Coolmaster D92
I haven't read anything very bad about the D92 but then I haven't read anything that would suggest it's a good cooler for a over clock.

Here are the results of testing on the d92 Cooler Master Hyper D92 Review Page 4 - Cooler Master Hyper D92 Testing: Setup & Results - Overclockers Club. From the results on overclocking it doesn't seem to be that bad of a cooler. I'm planning on getting a watercooler eventually does anyone have any suggestions on one I should get with this system?

Well it seem to be a middle of the road cooler at best according to the site you posted.

To me that is not good enough when over clocking to any high degree. Of course that is just my opinion.
