haha... to true. Pretty nice you can sit at 3.51Ghz comfortably though with only 1.43v. Mine seems to start to crap out above 3.2Ghz Anything above I have tried with like 1.45Volts and its unstable in Orthos. Its not the memory cause I take it down with the ratios (and have had it well above spec before). I think with more voltage it could be made stable but I dont feel comfortable above that voltage and I noticed when running orthos above 1.45v my temps push very close to 60c in orthos (which I dont like). Now I gotta decide if im just gonna call it and be happy which and alreay kick ass CPU or if im gonna push forward and try a different cooling solution to get slightly low temps.
