I am at 263.9. I if use Extreme LLC (lowering the vcore, so idle voltage is lower) it will freeze doing mundane task that don't require anything higher than 1847 mhz (cool n quite clocks down to this with fsb at 263.9). So I have to set LLC back to ultra high (raising the vcore which gives higher idle voltage). When I overclock using the multiplier only, cool n quite clocks down to around 1530 which would take less idle voltage to run it (which is lower vcore in conjunction with extreme LLC). Overclocking also using fsb (263.9) it will only clock down to 1847 like I mentioned. Now if I run high performance mode in windows or disable cool n quite, which with both settings would not allow my CPU to clock down therefore keeping a higher idle voltage (for 5 ghz somewhere between 1.55v and 1.6v) it will run fine with out any lock ups. So on my set up at 1847 mhz at 1.089v (performing task like watching youtube) it will freeze (once again with extreme LLC requiring lower idle voltage). If I use ultra high LLC (therefore raising idle voltage due to voltage requirement to hit 5 ghz) when my system clocks down to 1847 mhz (cool n quite working) my idle voltage is 1.116v. So there is no confusion, my system needs between 1.608v and a brief 1.62v to be stable regardless of straight multiplier or a combination of the two. Confused yet..LOL!
feel free to do w.e. you want
there is NEVER a reason to use extreme.
1 it causes massive heat spikes !
2 it causes voltage spikes that you can NOT see NOR detect without specialized equips
at most ultra high,
now again i run 1.6ish 24/7
i use 300fsb
i use CnQ
i have no issues,

i do 3900 HT
want my advice, dont
it was the hardest thing,
easy to corrupt your os, and extensively hard to stress test, easiest way i found was dvd fab
as stated it doesnt really help without tri/quad gpus

Passed 200 (!) IBT runs @ 4.6ghz / 1.4625 vcore only to fail seconds into a prime blend run
is it ibt or ibt-avx big difference
