4.8GHz at 1.45V and 24/7? If that's with HT on, I would love to have that.

I second that. A sweet overclock.

Unfortunately, I've got one 6903 work unit today. I'll be trying to complete that for a few days if it's possible. So, not going to play with the stable OC that I've already got. frown.gif

Yeah, 4.8 @ 1.45v, I know intel's safe voltage was 1.4 but I figure I could push it harder and it worked pretty darn well!

Go for the 5ghz! Manufacturers always give much to low safe voltages. Ie deneb.

Damn you guys. I was resisting the temptation to go higher than 4.4GHz when I get to oc'ing again. But now I don't think I can stop at that. Lets just hope that I don't damage my chip. More OC coming after the foldathon.

Yea that's remarkable, as you see in my Paradox rig I need 1.43+V for 4.4 GHz w/ HT. I've had no luck on 4.5 so hopefully you can do it!!
post #16 of 16
Good luck with it, im running prime at 4.5 right now, gave up on the FaT since my 24hr prime stable 4.4 crashed my client 3 times. mad.gif
