    my 950 isn't the bottleneck, and since it's on 24/7, I see no point in OC'ing it.

    4.26Ghz club at 1.44V but back to stock now with 1.175V and some awesome 30C idle and 40C load temps with 25-28C Room temps!

    Over 1.4V on air is madness, unless you only use that occasionally. Your CPU under max stress probably approaches 80C, higher with HT.

    I only crank mine up for programs which are heavy and run entirely on the CPU. It's been so long since I've needed to do that, that I don't even remember what voltage I used. There is a reason I stopped at 4356MHz instead of making it nice number like 4.4GHz... I didn't want to raise the voltage any further into dangerous levels.

    For 24/7 use I set my voltage back to stock (and some adjustment I forget) so that all the power saving settings work to keep it extra cool at idle, all those settings are auto disabled when the voltage is raised. It can possibly do 4.1GHz without the need to touch to voltage but I didn't care to test it so I left it at 4GHz which is still more than enough.
    Same as the other guy, too much. You can likely tweak it to get 4.3 with lower than 1.4V. VTT/whatever-that-I-forget voltage might be too low or something rather than the core voltage. Either way shut off hyper threading to lower your max temps by at least 10C, more likely 15... unless you use water cooling.

    Wish I could make it into the 5GHz club but summer heat issues and weird cold boot issues (occasionally stuck at "starting windows" even though it's stable enough to tackle 6 hours of stress-testing) at 5GHz have made that into a project for another time.

    3.4 at moment nice a cool can go way higher but what's the point no game iv played has maxed out all cores so until they start to I won't go higher.

    nice to know I can though.

    Games usually don't make as much use of multi-core as other applications might. It's tricky to program games for multiple cores, and as a result, best gaming processors have been the ones that gives the greatest performance per core rather than those with the most cores.

    In short, just because you see say 37% total CPU utilization on your activity monitor doesn't mean that a game won't see benefit from overclocking further.

    Having said that I still imagine most games today are completely fine in all situations with a 3.4 Intel i5.

    I have a Q9550 overclocked and undervolted to 3,2 GHz so I'm in 3GHz+ club!

    I'm happy to know that there's so many people having their cpu running at 4GHz+!!
