Longest stable overclock?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've seen many times anecdotal evidence of chip degradation over time (having to use higher voltage to maintain overclocks). But I'd like to see at least some estimates on how long your overclock has lasted (chip, % overclock, volt used etc). And if your chip did degrade how long did it last.
This is my first board i've done much overclocking with so I can't post just yet . Though my e6750 ran at 2.8ghz (huge oc i know) for many years and still does @ stock voltage.
I wish there was a general overclocking forum so I could ask for video cards as well but oh well!

My C2D E8500 ran for 2.5 years at 4.275GHz (35% OC) at 1.36v without signs of degradation.
