Furthermore why is the one at Intel's site
two downloads and the one posted here only one?
Sorry if these sound like really noob questions, but this is my very first time building my own system and setting it up and I just want to make sure I got everything right.
PS: I have a P8P67 Deluxe.
The download on the Intel site is actually only one download, depending on what you need.
The first in the list is for 32bit windows, the second for 64bit windows, and the third contains both the 32 and 64 bit versions.
It is different than the one linked to in the original post, in that it is a newer revision. Intel has listed IRST 10.1.0.1008 (revision 1008), where the first page of this post links to revision 1004.

There is no real good answer to that. Each CPU is different with what it requires to stay stable. I could guess that based on what I have seen, you are looking at 1.5V+.
I can hit 5.1 @ 1.48V very easily, but to get to 5.2, I have to push it to 1.56, and even then, unless windows is already running (ie I've done the OC in TurboV inside windows), my computer won't boot at that voltage. It will run relatively stable at that, crashes in Prime after 8hrs, but just won't boot windows for anything.
