Why do you want go get this chip stable at 5.2 GHz? Are you planning to run it at this frequency longer time? Do you understand, that you might need voltages beyond the manufacturers specifications?
Maximal specified voltage for this chip is 1.52V at standard MB power settings. If you max out the settings, this voltage drops to something like 1.4 - 1.45V.
It depends how are you going to use the processor. If you will give it 50% average load for few hours a day and cool it well, I think you could go with up to 1.45V. If you are going to render videos 15h/day at 100% load, 1.35V is the maximum I personally would use.
"I want to get the processor stable at 5.2 GHz" is a wrong idea. You cannot do such thing.
What you can do is to see, what your processor does at the safe voltage. You may get to 4.6, 4.8, and if you are very lucky even 5.
Do not burn your CPU, please.Edited by StepanPepan - 10/19/11 at 1:07pm
