When I don't know what I'm doing I always start on the safe side of things. It just happens to be that it seems to be working out better than expected with an negative offset rather than positive. Maybe I got lucky and found a good chip. I'm using a EVGA Superclock air cooler so I can take it up a few notches until I reach my safe zone of 1.45v and 85'C at load in prime95. I'll try it at +0.02 with 4.8ghz and see how that goes.


Edit: 10mins in with prime95. Running at 1.37v, offset +0.02 and its 76'C max @ 4.8ghz. If it stays stable like this overnight I'll try 5ghz in the morning.
