I wouldn't recommend 3.9 but 3.8 simply because you are limited to only raising the multi by 4. And that is all you have to do to oc, go into your bios raise the multi to 38, save and exit. The auto voltage should be fine but you should check that when running prime95 to check stability. If you wanted to get to 3.9 you would have to change your blck which is not recommended.

Also, bumping is illegal and will get your thread locked.

Leave it on, so it can go up to 4.2 when using 1 core. What is your voltage at?

it says here on Core Temp VID : from 1.2000 to 1.3700

That's a bit high, you'll want to manually set it.

1.2 is ok, but the proper way is to find the lowest you can run at. Your cpu will automatically turn off when temps go too high but don't go much higher than 75C. Intel says the max safe is 1.52 but you probably don't want to go above 1.35-1.4.

ive been checking the temps for the last 2 days and they seem to be good. in idle is about 30c
and on 100% one core keeps going up close to 70c(the rest stays around 65c) i stop the test before it gets there. i dont have the stock cooler i got a small aftermarket cooler with one fan... thats probably why, right?

note : when im doing normal activity in my computer such as gaming and browsing the internet the temps dont go more then 50c thats good right?

It's during the normal stuff that you don't want to go above those temps. Prime95 or whatever stress test software is normal to go a lot higher. Since it is just testing purposes it is fine to go even higher in the 80's.

so its bad if its a bit over 50c when im gaming and browsing at the same time?

It's good to be below 75.

Hey!
I was going to do the same like as k1114 told.
But in the BIOS of my asus p8p67 le, was a selection of power saver/perfomance/stable in the "home screen" of BIOS. I turned it to perfomance and now cpu-z (+speccy) tell me that processors of my i7-2600 non K are running at 4.2ghz. How is this possible? The multiplier turned to 42? It should be max 38? i'm sure that my processor is the non k edition.
Temperature went a bit up, but not much. It's 40-55 Celsius.
:o 
This works fine, no problems.. In games my fps is much higher. Like in LoL it was usually 111fps @1920x1080, now it is 142fps.

Oops, my mistake, the ratio should be in fact set to the highest turbo speed which is 42. If you try to set it higher, it shouldn't let you.

Performance of the new AMD FX 8150 has really disappointed me, is there enough in Intel Core i7 to surprise us?
