just bump it up in little increments. you will need to change you voltage once its not stable. your rig will reboot, or you'll get the bsod. when that happens, just bump up your vcore a notch or 2. once you bump up your fsb, run prime for like 10 minutes, if you dont get any errors, go back and bump it up again. continue to do this until you error in prime or you get a bsod. then you can try bumping up the vcore.

Hmmm,

It shouldn't be getting that hot at 1.4v, try re-seating your cooler with the thermal paste being about the size of a piece of rice.

You may need to go with a Tuniq Tower or similar cooler to obtain 3.6 for 24/7 use and maintain the temps that you want!

duuude...very nice oc.....3.6ghz is great!!

what are your ambient temps??.....

do you have good ventilation in your case??

did you install your cpu? or did a computer shop install it??....perhaps try buying some thermal paste (good stuff , AS5) and put it on your cpu?...that could bring temps down tooo.....

what core voltage u runnin ur cpu at right now? @ 3.6ghz?

Which is better for a quad, the dot in the middle or the line across the middle? Think I'm going to try a 3rd reseat before I give up on my Zalman.
