The idea behind lapping is to make the processor surface as flat as possible. The more flat it is, the more surface area contact it makes with the heatsink. The additional surface area contact makes for lower temps..

I am at 4.2ghz, stable, vcore @ 1.344

is it good by pro standards?

I was 3.8 yesterday, in cinebench got 5.21. Today with this overclock got 6.61. How big of an improvement is that?

I'd say bump it to 4.4-4.6ghz.
BD scales fine.

I got mine to 4.6 and energy saving options on.

I suppose I could go higer if I took 2 sticks of ram out... but 4.6ghz seems enough of a jump.

55C on prime95. Gaming that require heavy resources takes like 42.

give me an idea about the acceptable vcore. Also acceptable temp at load.

Keep temp at load around 50C. About reasonable VCore, it seems to me like 1.55V and above is where people start getting uncomfortable with any further voltage increases. However, I'd love to know because I'm pretty sure my chip can stabilize well below 50C at load, but well above 1.55VCore. I want to know what my max should be.

voltage: start with 1.4375 for 4.6ghz. Under load it will reach 1.440... it's cool. Adjust as necessary

Voltage under prime should reach 60 celsius maximum,
Remember, you'll reach nowhere near it in comon use, even gaming.
Leave always hwtmonitor on, so you keep track of highest temperature you achieved while benching, gaming, folding whatever.

Good luck

ps: I leave my ddr at 1.525 (.025 over)
plus a small bimp in nb and cpu/nb. But tht's because I run all 4 sticks of memory, 16g.

Guys, I need help ocing this chip.

I can do 4.5ghz with a 1.368v and run prime95 small FFT for 1 hour ( didnt want to test anymore).

But blend keeps crashing 1 core, it varies, core #5 7 or 8.

I have tried raising the cpu/nb to 1.4, 1.3 1.25v

And memory to 1.55 from 1.5v

Lowering mem speeds to 1333mhz and loosening the timmings, ( i loaded 4gb specs in bios).

But i cant stop my cores from crashing, i believe its due to 16gb ram can any1 help me solve this?

Or should i just give it MOAR Vcore? Since small FFT didnt fail i dont this its necessary.

EDIT1:
It seems that raising the Vcore to 1.392v load and lowering frequency and loosening timmings memory worked, still testing though.

EDIT2: Spoke too soon, core #7 failed.
