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.
My friend hit 4.4 on air @ 1.35 on his machine (4-hour Orthos stable; he has ADD and can't handle not using his computer for a full day, so we never tried 24-hour :P) ... How does yours perform @ 1.35 ?
