It was running at stock 3.0 GHz for approx. 4 years. If I keep it around 1.7v how long we talking as far as lasting (ballpark I know it's hard to determine). Also keep in mind we are dealing with decent temps at full load (46 C peak).

Would it also be ok to bump the voltage on my RAM? I went from AUTO to 2.65v the patriot site pdf download shown 2.60v. Would an increase benefit a little and not hurt too much? The RAM has real nice Alienware heat-spreaders.

AGAIN I appreciate all your guys time here. This site is GREAT!

PS.) I thought the SL6WK D1 stepping was the good one? That is what I have (see snapshot on previous page).

way too much voltage, my chip can run 4.0 with 1.42

It's hard to say what the lifetime would be, but you should be aware of a thing called "sudden northwood death syndrome" (SNDS). It happens at high voltage where a northwood dies very quickly even if the temps are good. As I remember SNDS usually happened around 1.7V and higher.

Also, ignore the people saying the voltage is too high. They obviously don't realize your stock voltage is 1.5 if they are quoting lower than your stock

Yah and how stable? First off my Asus P4P800SE doesn't go below 1.5 I believe. But if I were to put it at that, I can also run there at 4.0 but once something intense is executed (Photoshop, Game, etc.) it is a matter of time before it goes beserk (reboot, freeze, etc.).

At 1.7v temps aren't an issue and it is more stable, FOR ME. You can't benchmark someone else's settings like voltage and say that's what everyone else should be at. It would just be a starting point.

If I can get a good estimation of how long it MAY take to burnout that would help greatly. Like I stated before a simple google and you get people saying 1.7 is fine and others saying it's crazy. Do the temps speak for themselves in MY situation?
