Post Overclock & Voltage on Xeon 3350

I have my Intel Xeon 3350 currently @ 3.5 GHz and @ 1.37 V

Question is, does this seem to be too high of a voltage to be running 24/7? The temps in the evening and night time are right around 28-32c, and in the day time around 34-37c idle.

Thank you :)

Seems like a lot of voltage for 3.5GHz...

My X3350 runs 3.4GHz with 1.22V.

I've tried lower, and it won't run. 100% load temps were in the low to mid 60s. In game, it gets up to about 45c in day time, and about 40c at night. Is this a problem? Will that much voltage running thru it all day long 24/7 burn the chip out? Or is it still within reason that the temps are average.

i have run many a chip at there max voltage there whole life. and never had any problems
( I consider the life of a chip to be 6 to 8 years at most)

I'm curious, have you tried increasing the NB and FSB voltages instead while lowering the CPU voltage? Typically 45nm quads need a bit more FSB voltage rather than cranking the CPU voltage high.

Which one would be the northbridge voltage on a 780 board?

Heres an identical pic of my bios

Thanks for your guys help too. I appreciate it immensely.

I also seen some guide of a guy who got a Blue Ribbon and said to change all those lanes to +85 or +90 then to see how it runs. I just left those all on auto though and it ran stress test for 2 hours.
