    But you need to test it for 24/7 use not for a few hours. If it is stable after like 6 hours atleast but better overnight, then maybe you can say you are completely stable. Still, that is really low voltage.

    1.2v is the stock voltage for my 2600k at 3.4Ghz, very impressive.

    Thanks mate... What I think is impressive is that it's doable on my cheapo board.

    wtf...

    I'm at 1.39 just to keep it stable at 4.5. I may push it higher for testing purposes but I'm happy with 4.5 with 33 idle/64 load

    That's the beauty of sandybridge, for more expensive boards you pay for the extra features, all the rest is down to the chip.

    I guess I will stay at 1.370v level 5 load line calibration so it goes upto like 1.410v when calibrating but it goes up and down a lot so it doesn't stay on it for more then a few seconds anyway. I am completely stable not one BSOD and hours and hours of p95 and hours of gaming without one freeze as well. This is pretty safe right for OC purposes and everything.

    After reading this thread am I correcting in assuming that
    4.7 @ 1.440v is to high for day to day use?

    It's a bit on the high side for 4.7Ghz but it also depends on whether that's your full load voltage and what temps you are getting.

    What LLC are you using as well, load line calibration. I would love to crank mine to 4.7 Ghz too but I don't want to get near 1.5v as it is dangerous for 24/7 usage or so I hear.

    yesterday i manage to put my i5 at 4.4 @ 1.32 according to the asus suite and 1.365 according to coretemp with max temp of 62 in one core..

    just one question, wich one is more accurate with the volts?? the asus suite or coretemp ?? (or none of them..)

    Temps are 62 deg c under load
    1.44 is max V
    All I changed was the multiplier to 47
    I have changed no other settings

    LLC is set to default [auto] just changed the multiplier to 47.

    Well if it maxes at 1.44v and stays below 62c then based on my own experience with sandy bridge and everything i've seen I don't think there will be any noticable degradation atleast in the next few years.

    My own chip maxes out at 1.44v under light loads as I am using offset with 50% llc.
