Default Check out my OC!

CPU-Z Validator 3.1

4.3 GHTZ on a Noctua NH-U12P SE2. 65C Max on 100% load. Maximus III formula, 1006 Beta Bios. 1.4 Vcore.

Nice and Stable.

I got it up to 4.5 Max but it BSOD's.

Those remind me of the E8400, wicked chip for overclocking.

Excellent job. Perhaps a mod can move this to the Overclocking subforum though?

You should be more than happy with that OC. Very nice on air.

Verrry nice

When I can find some time, I hope to play with my i5 and get it over 4ghz. Just set a quick 3.8ghz to get it going.
Have you tried IntelBurnTest for stability? IntelBurnTest gets the CPU hotter than any other test I've tried, but it's quick for testing.

Im scared to try that thing. I usually use prime95 and wprime to test. That test seems very very overkill at-least thats what Ive read on ye' old EVGA forum.
