highest stable overclock which i want to run 24/7 with the watercooling: 4.0GHz (500X8), 1.5VCore, with BT i got 37/40 idle and 61/68 load

is the latter overclock safe if its perfectly stable; since its at 1.5V im a bit scared. 1.5V ok for, say, if i had this rig for 4-5 years? (i know i wont, just asking)
4-5 years might be pushing it, but I think with decent temps & 1.5vcore you should be good for at least 3. That's a pretty killer OC man, I can't get my boad to do past 3.6

thanks thats ok, purely conceptual, i mean i upgrade about once every two years so yeah
its your ram. that stuff is cheap. then again so is mine, but its at 2.3V (its rated up to 2.2 +- 5% so im good). believe me, the DS3 owns! i have same board as you (s3) and believe me its sick for overclocking. try loosening timings. mine were at 5-6-6-17 LOL to get the 4GHz. for the 3.6 right now they are at 5-5-5-15.

my benchies at 4GHz were higher with the looser timings, then at 3.6, and 5-6-6-17 1T was worse than 5-5-5-15 2T at 3.6.
