    Honestly, how would he know if it's safe? SB just hasn't been out that long.

    I keep getting a trojan blocked popup when I click your link. Strange...

    Agreed. I wouldn't worry too much about it though. If you're going to push voltage like that, you should have some sort of backup CPU handy.

    Yeah, been getting that Java error on [H] for a while. They've been down lately a lot.

    And yeah, I still would rather wait for official Intel specs before pushing my chip any further.

    How do you tihnk they designed thier boards? Qualification testing for various products is anywhere from 6 months to two years, and of course, this varies by manufacturer, but resy assured, they've had a few months, in the least, before the platform launched.

    I'd expect a minimum of 1 year @ 24/7 load before I considered it safe for 24/7 usage. And, honestly, I'm not sure that info is available ATM

    i wouldnt go above the 1.4v mark just yet till its been through some testing, the 45nm chips didnt like going over this voltage and would degrade.

    At one time Heat used to kill a cpu, You could go pretty high with voltage aslong as it was cool enough, With the 45nm chips it seemed the other way around voltage killed them even if the temps were ok.

    I advise caution,

    I think D2 batches that have been hitting retail are better than what asus tested. 10% hitting 5 GHz seems too low from what I've seen, unless they're counting 2500ks in that.

    1.98V for memory running 1600 @ 8-8-8, I call at least an extreme oddity there!

    Its Micron D9GTR that already showed wear and tear. It needs 1.9V+ to wake em up:)
