Yep. I went to 5.0 a few days ago, would boot but couldnt stress it. Dont remember volts; beleive it was 1.50

The ones I have worked with get really power hungry after 4.6ghz. 4.8 has generally required 1.475+ and rises to a ridiculous level past 4.9-5ghz requiring 1.5V+. I cannot see the temp on that run however.
Best trade off with vishera so far to keep voltage / power consumption low and a reasonable overclock usually sits around 4.6ghz.
I heard prime95 isn't working right with vishera. It seems everyone gets cores dropping at almost any oc. I willagree 4.6/4.7 is the golden clock for me. 1.4v
