    You should know every chip is different. Do what we all do, up the FSB, check for stability etc...

    You should be able to go further but get a better cooler first.

    Get something like a Swifty H20-120 and you should be good for almost 4Ghz (YMMV)

    my temps are around 40 degrees centigrade idle

    I wish I could pursuade my father to allow me to get the OCZ Vendetta II, but he said I must get into the top five(at school) then he'll let me get one:(

    stay under 1,25 vcore and you should be fine (try to check your temps and stability at full load with occt or orthos 95)

    hey TRIPTEX MTL i just notice your from mtl too :rockout:

    i wish i could still get those incentives :O but i think top five is easy for you with all the A's you get! Those Ocz's are the best we have in this country i reckon. Where are you getting it from?

    I'm running at 3.67GHz with 1.368 volts set in the BIOS and showing 1.34 in Windows. Stock cooling. On a pure CPU stress test the cores see up to 70C and proc 74C, but I don't see it as a problem as long as it's stable.

    My CPU/Cores idle at 37 though, and that isn't affected by ambient temps so you should check your HSF install.

    And I didn't up my volts to get a stable 3.2 or 3.3GHz.
