hey have you triedtweaking the gtlref volts yet? cause i used to have my q9550 at 1.352v and thought that i needed that much vcore to stay stable. with the tweaking i did to the gtlref volts i was able to lower my vcore to 1.3v and pass 6+ hrs of occt. i'd also say to make sure your fsbv is about 1.3-1.4 and have the spp at 1.4-1.5. that way you can get the vcore down and have your chip live longer.

Your chip will not die on you till your next upgrade, believe me...my cousin´s PC works with 1.365 for like 6 month....YOu will upgrade your chip way before your chip is dying...

its just for the overall good of the chip since its 45nm. since all are different, chip A could run 24/7 with 1.36 for over a year but chip B could be at the same volts and die in like 6 or so months. plus overvolting can cause instabillity so its always good to find the lowest stable vcore for your overclock. and you also get the benefit of lower temps.

1.3625 is the max safe volts, and 1.45 is absolute max. Running it at 1.36 24/7 won't kill it. I think 1.4vcore is still safe for 24/7, but I would not go above that for 24/7.

So I wanted to ask about vtt, I have mine at 1.25 VTTvolts. It is also safe up to 1.4right? So up to 1.4 would be safe for 24/7? I have heard of high vtt killing chips man. I might try 1.35 for 4ghz, but not above that.

I will not go over 1.36 for nothing in this World

Would this CPU be a pretty decent upgrade from a E8400? Or should I go for the Q9650?

Can this CPU also hit around 4.5GHz on water without going over the MAX SAFE voltage? Which is?

yeah and whats the point of degrading a chip and possibly killing it when you can use it in a backup rig..i gave my old e6600/8800 to my mom

that was my exact thinking. you can sell them, use them as a backup, or put them in a build for someone else. none of which can happen if the chip is dying or dead.

i would say 1.4 is really the max vtt that you would want to run 24/7, on our board i know it maxes at 1.45. i'd say stay at 1.35 if you can. thats what mine is at i believe.
