would a phenom II benefit from phase much?

    Im still messing around with a phase unit but am now taking my time after frying my old p5q pro board with bad insulating. My question is im kinda stuck at 3.8ghz on this phenom in sig, would dropping the temps to around -10 to 0 dregrees give me the extra help to acheive 4ghz as a daily speed? im only using 1.34v to get up to 3.7, after that voltage doesnt seem to get me past 3.8. Im currently watercooled and load temps are 39c, anyone have any guesstimates??

    Providing you insulate well and the phase using can handle the heat load your onto a winner especially with the AM3 chip as they cope better with extreme temps better than the current intel lineup

    Provided you get them cold enough,they can be ran at up to 1.8v according to AMD, so it shouldn't be too tricky to achieve 4ghz. :p
