I'm currently 100% stable through all popular stress tests (prime95, intel burntest, and so on) and fully stable while folding. I'm running @ 4.90Ghz (Bus: 102.1 x 48) @ 1.376v. My temps are 25 to 30c idle and 55 to 61c 100% load. The room has an average ambient temp of 72 to 75F. I think that is pretty damn good for a 24/7 and I'm quite happy with this chip even though the popular opinion of the 2550k is that it's a gimped 2500k.
great great GREAT overclock.
cant wait to see the results from water. i lived in NC for a year. yeah it gets pretty damned hot in the summer. whatcha gunna then ? run ac 24/7 and hope for a sub $300 elec bill ? i hate to see you clock downwhen that chip runs so sweet
