My System Specs

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.
man I sure wished my system ( AMD) could clock to that I am lucky to get to 4 Ghz stable which is why I am really considering going to Intel
