Not all chips are equal so what voltage works for me may not work for you. I would start by disabling speed step, c-states, spread spectrum, and any other intel power saving feature you can find. Save reboot, see if it posts. then go in and slowly increase the multiplier saving and rebooting to make sure it will post. These chips get hot when you go past 4.6GHz and 1.3V so i chose 4.5 as my 24/7 overclock. Start with 1.3V and slowly work your way up to the 45X multiplier. Once there you can run stress tests and reduce the voltage to get it as low as possible.
