My System Specs

Default OC E7200 from 3.73Ghz to 4Ghz

So for my rig in sig, I'm thinking of trying to push my E7200 to the magic 4Ghz. The VID is 1.2V. Folding@Home makes my CPU top out at 51C. According to CPU-Z, The Vcore is 1.36V under load.

Do you think I can push it to 4Ghz? What would you guys change in the BIOS? I currently have all voltages at stock besides the Vcore and the Vdimm.

On my Gigabyte EP45-UD3P I had to push a few extra volts out of the northbridge to get to 4Ghz. True though that I have an e5200 and not an e7200 tho. Still, with 1.42vcore Im almost fully stable @ 4Ghz. Just can't get Orthos to like it. Everything else passes without issues.
