I have since given up pushing past 3.4ghz. My system just does not want to do it. I tried up to 1.45v, +0.2v (g)MCH, +0.1v FSB to try and get it to run 3.5ghz stable, and it did load into windows without a problem. It unsettled me, especially since F@H would crash the system after a few hours on +0.1 gmch/fsb. I guess it isn't a matter of how far my hardware threshold is, but rather how far my own appetite for destroying my hardware is!

At any rate, I did not feel comfortable going past 1.45v. Like Babr said, 70% overclock really places this chip far above what it can operate otherwise, and I will leave it at that. One day though, I will get this to 3.6 on air.
