48 took 1.39 (I moved to 1.4 because Im ocd and need round numbers or I go nuts)
45 iirc took 1.275 or so. (this was likely a little high as I had really bad ram that was giving instability, albeit I swapped it out for really good ram but now all 4 dims are full and making things hard because intel in their infinite wisdom decided to put EVERYTHING on their chip /boggle)
Anyhow, at 4.8 my temps hit 70c when it was warm. 4.9 im running IBT on maximum as we speak (takes FOREVER w/ 32gb of memory) and @ 1.5v im hitting 72 on the hottest core. Only been 20m so far though. I decided to back it down. I cant get the uncore past 4.6 with a reasonable amount of vring and I was starting to spread them out a bit far. I wish they would be more clear on the ratio between the two's required etc.
Aaaaanyways, getting long winded here. If you have any more questions feel free. Working on getting all my voltages as low as possible (and temps) and gonna rock it out at 4.9 permanently I think. (which I HATE because its such an ugly number!) Just going up 100mhz now takes .1v+ now, getting out of hand =) I bet I could boot into windows at 5.2 or higher though easy. Very nice chip. My VID was 1.077 iirc. Not the lowest, but pretty low.
