Hi, firstly I would like to apologise in advance if I sound like a complete dumb person and for any mistakes that I may make and would like to Thankyou in-advance for reading my post and to either help or insult me lol .
Basically I have been reading advices given on this site regarding overclocking and iv just overclocked my current computer but dont know wether its any good or not or if i have totally messed up my overclock! Ive asked my uncle who is an extreme gamer but he just states that my pc spec and overclock is only OK but dosent help me any further (never has and everything iv done is by reading on forums) but another of my mate says that it the overclock and my pc is Very Good. My spec is as follows:-

Amd Phenom II x4 965 BE processor overclocked to 4.25,
Asus Crosshair IV Formula motherboard,
Gigabyte HD4870x2 in CrossfireX (2 cards = 4gpu's),
4GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600mhz memory overclocked to 1838.2mhz (i think),
150GB WD Velociraptor hard drive (got my OS),
1TB & 500GB Hitachi Sata II Hard drives (both used for movies, software etc),
LG Blu-ray/dvdrw drive,
Coolermaster 1000watts modular powersupply with 6x12v rails,
Lian Li PC-P80R Limited Edition Ati CrossfireX red tower/case.

Below is my cpu-z validation and iv also ran stability test for 1hr.

Please could someone just let me know if everything is ok for the overclock and wether my pc spec is also ok as any input would be much appreciated.

Many Thanx and Kind Regards

Doesn't look to bad from what I can see. But then the question comes up how are you cooling it and what the load temps are on the cpu. To find out if it's a stable setup you should run Prime 95 for a minimum of 4 hours. Really keep an eye on them temps if it starts to get above say 58-60 within 5 min of running prime than your overclock is to high and would try lowering the Volts till it bluescreen crashes and bump them up a little at a time until it's stable again. Running them volts you have and not having water cooling is really not recommended. You may also want to run that memory at 1600 and not at 1838 that seems a bit high for that memory.

I hope this helps
