In day to day stuff you aren't going even notice a difference between 3.0 to 4.5 :P

I'm just one of those people who likes to push to see how far I can go before I decide to stop or see smoke or hear a loud bang.

For the 45nm chips 1.4v is perfect for 24/7 day to day functions.

I'm leaving this 8600 at 1.5v because I know by the time its ready to die there will be another chip out for me :P

Water cooling will keep temps MUCH cooler than air cooling for most processor. The ambient temps in my office right now is insane.
