Yeah this chip is better than some. You should be able to do 4.5 to 4.6 ghz while staying under 1.38v if you feel this will help you.

I found that dropping CPU PLL down to 1.7v-1.72v helps to decrease the vcore needed for stability, but not my much. I've also recently switched from fixed voltage + LLC to offset voltage no LLC and I need less volts for stability now. Before I used fixed voltage + LLC. C3 and C6 states under cpu options have caused idle BSOD issues for me so these are turned off but it may be fine with your board. I feel my motherboard is holding me back sometimes.

But I really see very little improvement in gaming after 4.2ghz - 4.3ghz. I did a little bit of testing to see if single GPU performance increases if the Sandy Bridge chip is overclock past 4.2 ghz and as far as 3dmark11 and 3dmark vantage, it does not. May differ with different game titles, but not by much.

Here are my tests: http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...rformance.html
