No sarcasm, mine is max at 43 and someone on the asrock x79 discussion thread had an 3820 that maxed at 44. I was just going to be jealous!!

I'll check it again when I get home... But i set it with an Asrock Extreme4 last night before I reset it, and I'm pretty sure it took 45. If it does, I'll be sure to let you guys know.

On my board you can "set" it to 44 in the bios, but the cpu only allows 43. Even the auto over clock thing from ASUS "sets" the multiplier to 44 but cpuz showed it really only went up to 43.

I don't know how Intel sets the limits on its cpus but I don't think there is any way around them. The max multiplier is, from what i can tell, the max multiplier, period.

now that does make sense.... I haven't messed with my ratio at all... I'm pretty satisfied as it is. Like I said, I'm kinda n00bish to this so I dont wanna tear it up lol.

Bloomfield came out Gulftown came out November 2008 with ~ 770 million transistors. March 2010 with ~1.1 billion transistors, Sandy Bridge E came out in late 2011 with ~ 2.2 billion transistors.

Lynnfield was launched in September 2009 with 731 million transistors. In January 2011 Sandy Bridge has ~1.1 billion transistors.

Roughly there has been a doubling, however Moore's "Law" is more observational and predictive rather than a rigorous fundamental law of science or engineering.

Just set the strap to 125 and lower the multiplier to 37 for 4.6GHz, or somewhere you're comfortable that the voltage you are aiming to stay under can handle and just tweak it a little. You can get a little more from you memory if you raise the strap too.

I find it pretty fun to overclock, especially when you start messing around with all the other voltages and really pushing your hardware. It's not difficult, though i do understand your apprehension. Setting my cpu to 1.630 was a little scary but to me it was worth it.

I'll probably want to stay at stock volts. I figured 4.5 or 4.6 would be aight on stock. Just using it to beat renders out

My bad, just wikipediaed and moore's law is a doubling of transistor chips on a integrated circuit every two years. I thought it was a doubling of computing strength every 18 months. Six core Xenon and I7's actually exceeded moore's law.
