Overclocked my i7 2600 (Non K) thoughts?

Hi everyone.

Just showing what I managed to do with a little tinkering, stuck my turbo multiplier up and it magically made it the CPU's normal running speed. :o 
Changed the BCLK to 103.1 and it seems fine, temps idle around 39C with my H50 (Room temp 27C), voltages are on auto but never seem to go above
1.244 for some reason, not sure if that's normal or not.

Primed it for a few hours and nothing bad happened but I ran out of time until college started.

Here's the results: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2080080
Is this alright for a non-k CPU? I hear of people reaching 4.2GHz+ on a non-k but I didn't want to risk it.

it's fine don't worry as you said "that people reaching to 4.2ghz on a non-k" the reason that they are using good cooler like hyper 212 EVO or PLUS and some are running water cooling that's why they hit 4.2ghz.

I mean I hear of people doing it but haven't seen anyone do it myself, or results for it.
I'm not using a bad cooler by any means, this H50 may not be the best thing out there but it's considerably smaller than most air coolers and more convenient for me to have while providing "good enough" cooling to allow me to overclock confidently.

my friend as you don't know that 2600 non-k doesn't overclock too much because they are normal version and "k" model is particular design for overclocking that's why they labbled it as "K"

Huh? I do know that, I knew that before they even released the CPU's.
I know that the K series is fully unlocked while the Non-K series has most elements locked out so few values can be modified.

I'm saying I know it's possible to get a theoretical maximum stable clock of 4.2GHz from documentation on a Non-K processor because the BCLK is incredibly limited but I haven't seen any proof yet.
