Yeah they do but as long as you don't push the voltages too high, by the time it affected the cpu you'd be wanting a new one anyway. I think about 1.5V is the absolute max you should push the cpu to and that's only if you have really good cooling, but preferably keep the voltage as low as possible.

I got a HAF 912 case with 6 case fans and a decent after market CM n520 cpu cooler. GTA IV means 43 degrees load @4.0Ghz & 2400mhz NB. Right now according to CPU-z im only using only 1.40v (which is my default for some reason, it runs the same voltage @ 3.2Ghz)

So i can definitely push this sucker. Whats the NB frequency exactly? What does it heat up that i will not be able to monitor? Like any chips on the mobo? I don't want to blow my mobo it was $200 which is a lot considering my vga was only $125 and cpu $130....

It links the cpu to the memory. Don't take my word 100% on this but I'm pretty sure it's on die so it shouldn't heat up any other parts of the motherboard if you overclock and overvolt it slightly, but will heat up the cpu some more.

CPU now @ 1.50v and 4.2ghz but most of all, NB frequency at 2800mhz @ 1.30v.
This increased my Fps significantly and the game runs so crisp. Couldn't be happier! Hope all amd 9x5 people do this!

edit - tightened the ram and GTA IV loved this again, i went up atleast 5fps and it wouldn't go under 40fps which never happened before.
