My System Specs

The only voltage I set is the CPU, everything else is on auto. That seems to be sufficient for 4.7GHz to run fine (granted not prime stable) but I've never had it crash otherwise. I've ran like this for about a year now and well my PC still works every day so I guess it's not a big deal. However, I do turn off my PC whenever I'm not home and it does have Speedstep/C1E enabled still too, so it downclocks for the majority of its running time.

Anything over 4.7GHz doesn't boot though, so that would need some major tweaking of settings I imagine and maybe possibly damaging my chip at that point.

So either my board doesn't have that issue, or recent BIOS revisions have fixed it. Either way, my chip doesn't seem to be dead yet!
