Try 1.36v.. mine was stable enough for bechmarks round about there.
[hwbot] 16748 -gtx 260 SLI 670 core/1444 shader/1060 mem | PhenomII x2 @ 3.8ghz[hwbot/]

cost me my trusty old 600w ocz power supply this run blew the crap out of it, think i can get this cpu to 5gb on water but quad core 2 and 2 4890's need more than 600watts what size you guys running on tri card set up whatts enough juice?
That's an extremely impressive overclock on a q9550 WD. I'm running a 1000 Corsair HX and has taken anything I throw at it, if your looking to go three gpus it will cover you nps.
lol there ya go blowing chit up already. Nice run bro. Most peeps now days a pushing hard using 1kw+ PSU's.
thanx m8 just warming up to 1000w hey jezz that a lot of juice but if thats what it takes
hehe yeh didnt take long hey back to my old habits just starting to get my head around the new gear too oh well gives me an excuse to get some better cooling and psu and start leaning on this thing :3eyes:
Phrozin back on OC... Nice see to you m8...
I should rebuild me a little sys and come back take some fun in OC world.
hey buddy long time no see was hoping you were still around!!! yeh mate get a rig going for sure pretty cheap these days but a lot of catching up with all the new stuff though! I had a nice badly needed rest from ocing though now im back do do some tweeking
Hey Phrozin, doing a good job with that 9550 I see! good to see you moving back up the rankings
thanx mike your doing ok aswell m8 guna max this thing out, in the middle of sticking it on some meth then on to a 975 x58 and tri vids they haul, the p45 8x pci-e hurts me big time but ill see what it can do with it but aint happy , 25k dont cut it

Not bad at all my friend. You've already gained over 23% in your score from increasing clock speeds alone!
If only games would increase at the same efficiency rate...
/tear im trying so hard to get my CPU to bench @ 4.6Ghz, im even at 1.6vcore! ehh this is annoying.
Thanks bud :thumbup: Still tweaking a bit more, not even close to max yet. That's without pushing the CPU much(had it @ 3.7 on stock volts the other day stable), still at basically stock volts on the entire system. Had the NB and HT running at 2200, and RAM at stock timings/volts/1T running 1466. Odd thing though, either this card is a rather week overclocker, or it's really sensitive. I had it running fine at 655/1410/1950, and as soon as I ran Furmark to stress it quick, the screen just goes blank about 3 seconds into the test. I read at a few other places about peeps having issues with the G80 core 8800's and having to flash the BIOS to update it, having the same issue with the screen just going blank as if it shut off the card. So I might see about flashing it, if I can find a BIOS for it still.
[hwbot] 23097 - GTX 285 756/1512 - Core i7 920 @ 4.2 on Air [/hwbot]
Best i can do with this processor methinks...
You can do 200 to 250+ points better if you oc your card..
I got 13111 with a E4400 @ 3.5Ghz and a 256mb 8800GT. My friend got 13243 with a 512mb 8800GT and his E4300 @ 3.45Ghz.
Don't over do it m8 I had the same problem with my other E8500 it just wouldn't Oc without lots of Vcore
havent botherd trying again for 4.5ghz will try when i come back off holiday i think with all windows open just to aid air flow maybe add some fans to keep it cool when benching
2x 3870's in CrossfireX core:864 mem: 972 / Phenom 2 X3 720BE @ 3.774Ghz / 6Gb OCZ Reaper @ 8xx
Thanks m8, in real i m still in break now, i rarely come to guru, but if old guru's OC junkies are back, i should maybe come more see what happend there.
