hmm, I haven't been able to get my processor stable over 3.0.. your making me think about giving it another shot! I guess I was never sure how many extra volts to give the processor. All the reading you can do I guess in the end its dependent on all the components of your system! I think I tried like 3.2 at 1.35V and maybe that was not enough. I run 3.0 using auto-handling on the voltage. I have a Gigabyte EP35 DS3P 2.1
