What settings did you have? It seemed like the settings that got me the farthest in prime95 are 229x18.5 with 1.475 vcore 2977nb at 1.425v. Ram was at 1526 MHz and 1.65v.

1.5V is fine. Monitor your temps, and back off if they exceed 55C on full load.

I was running 1.55 when I had my 790XTA-UD4 for 24/7 use without any issues.

They can take it, so go for it.

The most my core temps really hit is about 40ish. Theyve never really passed that. I'm just worried about blowing out/overheating my mosfets. Had one blow out on a crappy msi board with stock settings lol. -facepalm msi-

i would say temps don't really matter as long as you can cool it, i'm at 4.3 @1.6v 24/7 and my temps are 30c on full load.

I can run 3.7Ghz with Auto settings for everything except the multiplier. But then I need 1.475 for 4Ghz. Thats just the way the Phenom II chips are.

Just a tip about warranty if something happens, if they ask if you ever overclocked, say no because there is no way they can prove you did.

If they ask which heat sink you used, say the one included with the CPU because they will void your warranty if say anything other than that one.

That is interesting. I got stable 4GHz at 1.375 as well but I have never tried 4.2. What kind of temps are you getting with your watercooling?

Also, I got 3.7 on stock voltage as well. Our chips must be pretty similar.
