I hope I have some reasonably fair questions for you.

I am not new to overclocking and have built several hundred machine over the last 10 years. I do not go ape ***** on games and never have. I guess I am still confused at running Prime 95 for several hours to confirm stability and temperatures. This seem like running the Chevy 350 in you driveway at 6000 rpm for hours to test the engine.???? I never go over 38 degrees for normal everyday operations.
I usually run the Intel test for both memory and cpu and have got as high as 100 after 10 minutes. My voltages get to 1.46 during this testing but depending where you look this is a death sentence or just an occasional nuisance.
I am currently running at 4.4ghz and really never break 1.2v for normal everyday operations. Everything i have seen says that this is ok but I am thinking of going to ddr3-2400 but that requires 1.65v and my bios goes to a red color when I go to this voltage.
It seems that what I have to gain are very small compared to what I might lose.
