Default Re: Core i7 Overclocking thread

I think I'm gonna start with 160x20 and leave the RAM at 1600. Since this is only a 3.2GHz clock speed, would I need to mess with voltages at this point? If not I'd like to get a feel for how my system temps are, use it as a base, and go from there. If I'd have to up the voltages for this low of an overclock I might be a little less inclined. I don't want to significantly shorten the lifespan of the chip - I'd like to keep it at least two to three years.
