I'm shooting for the highest possible oc at around 1.45v, since temps are really good on this chip, I might run it at 1.5 as long as it gets me a crazy high OC.
Yeah, with the Intel Tuning Plan you can go crazy like that. lol My initial testing indicates I can get mine to 4.6ghz at 1.4v, but the jury is out for anything beyond that. Custom watercooling is underway, so we'll have to see what this baby will do with high end cooling in a couple of weeks. If it will do 4.7ghz under 1.5v I just might do it, too -- worst case scenario it burns up in a year and I'll just get a new one from Intel.
Good luck with your build, I hope it's just the board that's holding you back, that's easy enough to replace.
