My System Specs


Well some of the chips I've OC'd will actually run 4.5 on stock voltage, so I really mean "reasonable voltage"....

Mind you, getting that same chip to 5.0ghz required getting the last bit of speed from other ways rather than just the multiplier, and pushed that chip just under 100C under load. That's with the big Noctua D14 as well. Even going up to 4.8 gave way too much voltage / heat for the end result.

300mhz to 500mzh isn't worth doubling your CPUs temperature and running a sheeeotload more voltage through it.
