Thanks a lot guys, all of a sudden those guides all make sense!! This is really the best response I've had on a forum for a long time, I'll definitely be sticking around!!

Word of advice: remember that you will need LN2/ridiculous cooling for multis arnd the 57 mark. Start off by aiming for 4.5-ish and build up from there while watching volts and temps

LN isn't for me lol! I was also wondering, is an OC of 4.2 to 4.5GHZ safe for a 24/7 gaming system, in terms of reliability and longevity of the chip?

Hell I've been running my chip @ 4GHz for about 10 months now so I wouldnt imagine that an extra 500MHz would matter. As long as you dont keep on telling yourself that

I have mine @ 4GHz 24/7, mainly because I don't need the extra grunt and I am just slightly worrying about my chip degrading at higher clocks. My temps are OK though, in IBT I max out 57 degrees on my hottest core and about 4 degrees lower for the rest. This is running my CM Hyper 212+ on 'silent' (+- 750 - 1000RPM) but I'll give 1000 - 1500 and 1500 - 2000RPM a bash and let you all know
