And yea, it's $229, not a big deal imo. I can run 4.8 @ 1.35v too, but today I'm stress testing 5.0Ghz.
I also haven't ran a chip stock since about well actually never....even my old 286 was o/c from 12mhz to 16. So I've never actually ran a stock computer, and I've never had a chip die. Last I recall even that old 286 still boots dos 6.22 and runs Wizardry 7
