The functional operation limit for your CPU is 1.40v; it can most definitely be pushed higher (especially for benching in a review), but expect degradation and reduced long-term reliability.

? Where is this coming from? I thought it was 1.55 and below 60C and you would be fine.

From AMD.

Take this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103675

It's rated for 1.5v & 62C, closely matching your thoughts.

For the OP's model though, it's 1.40v & 62C.

Edit - Clarification; he's running the 125w HDZ965FBGMBOX model, which has a maximum rating of 1.40v, not 1.425v as I had said earlier.

In a perfect world, Rookie1337, I would guess that all those numbers would be considerably lower than what many have posted would be 'OK'.

Also, I've read so many contradictions in every step of the Overclocking process that it just came down to picking one website, i.e. Overclock.net, and sticking with the advice from those members.

Before I got my cooling under control, I would get that 965 as hot as 65c to maybe even 68c. I wouldn't suggest that you run that hot because degradation would be sped up quite a bit, (as jlells01 has stated), and that's exactly why I worked on the cooling side pretty hard until I had it under some reasonable control.

But that said I have been encouraged by the info regarding the voltages that have been mentioned in posts of this topic and have just begun dropping voltages with quite a bit of success so far!

I still need to run this setting longer to be sure that it will work but so far I have managed to keep stability and my 4.GHz at a 1.475v setting! That's a pretty good improvement over the 1.5375 that I was running up until now.

So thanks to all of you on that, I'm going to keep it at that voltage for a while and if it doesn't show any 'freaky' signs I may try to go a little lower.

Well I think the numbers are in and I got the voltage down to 1.500. I almost had it at 1.475 but the stability was just a little too close to the edge. At 1.500 I won't be winning any medals but if you consider that it is a .0375 improvment it looks a little better.
