    now my questions are does everything look ok? Such as vcore, from what I've googled 1.4 is supposed to be the limit for stock voltage. Since this board has been known to have a vdroopage problem... is it possible the actual voltage is overvolting the cpu (noticed my 12v rail is a little high)? I personally dont trust software monitoring to be very exact.. Do you think I will hit 4+ ghz without frying anything? or should I just keep going until I hear a fizzle pop sound and the smell of burning plastic hehe. Mostly looking for people with experience with this board. Still running orthos as I type hoping to stay stable for atleast 9+ hours....

    I've gotten my 3.0GHz, Prescott to OC 700MHz, with a vCore of 1.3375v, and 1.6v for the NB chipset. 4.0GHz, should be within your reach.
