      I had it stable 24/7 on my Maximus Formula P35 -- @ 3.6GHZ (450x8), 1.512V cpu, 1.65 PLL , I forgot what my VTT was set at and I had (LLC enabled) --

      to get it to 3.8 it needed above 1.55V, and beyond that voltage had to skyrocket 1.6V just for 3.85. But I did max it at 3.93GHZ.

      BTW all this was done with liquid cooling, also for the max overclock runs. I had the Radiator inside ice water.

      Hey fella, my xeon used to be yours once upon a time right?

      What sort of voltages ( in bios) did you use for 3.5ghz ? and what sort of voltages are safe with this chip?

      As with my replacement P5Q3 not even 1.456 volts will keep it stable.

      Currently running 3.3ghz.

      Is it just my crappy mobo holding me back?
