75*C ? you can go all the way to 95*C and still be 100% safe. did you check the temps in the stable spreadsheet?
most users there are upper 80's

Well I like to be on the conservative side so as not to degrade the chip

if the chips werent safe up to that point and were in trouble of going boom, intel wouldnt state max temp as 105*C. the max temp of 72.6* that is stated as t case max is for a stock clocked chip on stock voltage and stock heatsink for prolonged periods of time.
also, the max you hit in stress testing will never be hit under normal use. no one running in 80*C + temps has reported any problems with their chip. sandy bridge was released 3 years ago. we would have definitely seen evidence of heat of this range being a killer by now.

1. Run 1344/1792 tests for 15-20 minutes.

1b. FAIL - Increase cpu vcore, then repeat above steps.

2. PASS p95 12 hour test - Keep that overclock or increase CPU Multiplier and repeat the above steps.

OR

Pick the speed you want to run at i.e 4.8Ghz, run 1344/1792 and keep increasing cpu vcore until you can pass both these tests, then go for 12 hours of prime95 custom torture test with 90% of your ram. Obviously you will need to keep increasing the vcore until you can pass the p95 12 hour test. Well its not necessary but thats what I do for stability.

Like illiterate says, dont increase the cpu vcore until you find its unstable.

Pretty good wright up will put this to use tomorrow as i just installed a new mobo as my gigabyte blew up the other day. So now I got a as rock extreme 4 z77 board. I am running at 4.0 ghz now. Going to try to get to 4.5 and go from there

Oh no be careful with that motherbpard the mosfets are poor on it, the vrm cooling is inadequate for high overclocks and it underreports the cpu vcore by about 0.05v, so 1.350v actually shows up as 1.300.

unfortunately that was my only choice at microcenter. as they didn't have any other z77 boards in stock at my local location. believe me it wasn't the choice i wanted but will make due for now. i plan to do a cpu and motherboard upgrade sooner than later this was just to last me a couple months. but thanks for that info i will be careful. well good part is if i blow it up i got 30 days to return it.

Is it possible that for example you use a multiplier of 40 with 1.23 voltage and then increase to 41 with 1.24 and it works, so you have increased multiplier by one and voltage by 0.01. Now I have increased to 42 but it's not stable with 1.25. So, just to make sure, it is possible that the voltage increase is not always the same? Sometimes it's 0.01 and somtimes it's 0.015 or 0.02 per multiplier?

The voltage increases are not the same you will require more voltage as you go up for example you might need 1.25 for 4ghz but u may need 1.28 for 4.1ghz
I can do 4.5 at 1.29 and 4.6 at 1.35 that is a huge bump for 0.1 ghz also try offset voltage not fixed when u find the right frequency

Ok, understood. Is there any disadvantage of having a higher voltage? Just asking because I am currently at 1.28 v with a multiplier of 43 testing if its stable.
