The Extreme4 is a solid board, don't want to hear the DPAK mosfet scaremongering malarkey. I got it for $99 brand new. It will be more than fine for 4.5 or 4.6GHz. We have many people using it here on these forums with 5.0GHz daily clocks without issues.
I'm familiar with your guide, at least the over 4.5GHz parts
But just wanted a baseline voltage to start from. I think 1.35v is solid, and if I can get it to 1.3v as you say that would be wonderful. But 4.6GHz @ 1.35v would be ideal.

If I can do 1.35v @ 4.6Ghz that's pretty nice. I never tried lowering it under 4.8GHz. Just attempted to get it stable at higher. Where I hit a wall at 4.9GHz. So that's gotta count for something. If IBT and LinX @ 90% can pass @ 1.35v @ 4.6GHz I might try to undervolt it more then. But I'm realistically looking for a stable overclock that will stay there for a while without me having to go my mother's house to stabilize it for him. Which is my only concern about trying to undervolt it. Although, getting the longest life span out of it is also another variable that is kept in mind. However, if I can get a year out of it at that clock/voltage that would be good. Because then I can pick up a 3770k and give him my 2600k.
