Further to what was mentioned above, depending on your processor you may need to run more workers? My i7 2600K needs 8.

Nah, 2500K only uses 4 threads - 4 workers. 2600k uses 8 though, that's what you get for an extra $100!

Correct. CPU-Z will show the correct voltage actually in use, and it does fluctuate a little from time to time. During last night's test it bounced around between 1.296V, 1.304 and a couple of times it went as high as 1.312V. I'm fine with that, but I don't think my cooling capacity is sufficient to go much higher. I was hoping to keep core temps down in the 60's for extended high-load workloads, but this is currently pushing it to 67C. I am actually thinking of pulling this back 100MHz or so, from 4700 to 4600 to keep the thermals down. I know it can handle higher temps, but for my needs I don't think I need to push it that hard. Frankly I probably would never even notice the different between 4600 and 4700 anyway.

You wont notice, in fact 4600 is the sweet spot for those Sandys, above that you will need higher voltages to keep it stable, and along with that comes heat, I have my 2600K @ 4600 for everyday use, temps never reach 65C with 1.30V, and thats during prime test, the max I have reached playing games is 56C
