i7-950 @ 4.2 ghz HT OFF with 1.341V. Sustainability?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
If you've been active the past 4 days, you will know me as the newb who asked a million questions about overclocking.

But now I think I have a stable overclock at a decent voltage, and I'm looking for the OK to run this folding 24/7.

Just to reiterate the topic title:

Core i7-950 @ 4198.56 MHZ
Core Voltage (CPU-Z) Max Reading = 1.341V

Max Temperatures 72/70/67/66

Hyperthreading OFF

Cooler: Corsair H100 in Push/Pull Configuration.

My questions are:

1. Is the voltage too high for this card? I haven't had much luck getting the super low voltages that everyone else has. I was able to get this baby at 4.4 with 1.435V but people said it would kill my CPU. I decided to drop down to this to save myself the heartache of replacing the processor.

2. How sustainable is the current configuration?

3. Do you think I have the go ahead to 24/7 this baby for Folding@Home?

1.375v is Intels max vid, you'll be fine below that with good temps as well.

If you're folding on the cpu, you will want HT enabled. You would get better ppd with a lower OC + HT.
