You just have to be very good in overclocking and also have some luck ;).

Have a look at this GO OC (GIGABYTE Open Overclocking Championship) 2010 Worldwide Final results & coverage:

And also have a LOT of money to buy Intel hardware to practice with. Of course, we don't overclock on the AMD platform, do we?!?

Oh yes, I've had my 1090T up to 4.2GHz on air but that doesn't count!!!

Remember, when all else fails a cup of tea and a good swear will often help! It won't solve the problem but it will make you feel better.
