    Im a happy man to get this far at 3.4ghz, not one single crash or fail boot yet.

    Was just wondering what the average voltage was for clocking these, im feeling prety lucky so far at just 1.35v.

    Abit Guru shows 28c Coretempp shows 38c, speedfan shows 25c and bios shows 29c.

    psychas is that clock for 24/7 usage or for just benching, seems crazy gettin 3.6ghz on air for that vcore?

    How long does it Prime95 at 3.6 with that Vcore?

    I've tried 3.6 with a Vcore 1.480 (CPU-Z) and backed it off. CoreTemp was reading 70,70, 66,66 across all four cores - which I thought was getting a bit high!

    Idle temps (Windows / internet browsing etc) are currently at 34, 32, 32, 33. (still at 3.6)

    Prime ran for 10min before I manually stopped it as I didn't like how hot it was getting.

    I'm using a Tuniq Tower with some AS thermal paste underneath.

    Priming iv not dont yet as im needing to use my computer for work, but its running all my apps without fault. Im rendering using all 4 threads so my work is very intensive.

    My Tower is a TT Mozart TX with 3x 120mm case fans, plus 2x 120mm on my Dual Rad, these are SilenX iXtrema ones.

    My CPU block is holding its own here, and is doing a exceptional job. Im using a rare Silverprop Cyclone VE.

    You really need to Prime all 4 cores, even an hour will show you how stable your overclock is.
