On my friends system we upgraded his CPU to a X5460. We ran prime with it stock and good thing too because it was not 100% stable. We had to turn off some of the power saving features because they were setting the voltage wrong.
Obviously you have not read what I wrote.
I always leave room, always take care running low Vcore so degradation never occurs, ambient temp rise does not affect system, etc.
Still I run 4Ghz... if you can think about it.
Obviously you have a little experience and rely on something does not show the whole picture.
You can learn a few things if you have the willing to and not think you know everything just cause you trust Prime stability while I do not.
But I take that as a compliment, so no hard feelings. Still you may know better, but first listen to someone who overclocks more than 15 years, has a 4Ghz 1.176V, has a Quad Core @0.95V Edited by patentman - 3/21/14 at 8:19am
