You also need to understand that not all chips are the same. Not all of them will clock the same with same voltages.
Same goes to you. I think you are comparing to dual to quad.
I believe it was 1.45v max. recommended for this chip, but i would recommend you to keep it under 1.4v.
While he may not have a system similar to the one listed below, he DOES have a system that is VERY similar to my old setup. E8400, Asus Maximus/Rampage Formula and decent RAM. The difference is that he's running a 8800GTS and I was running a 8800GT. In theory his 3DMark06 scores should have been similar if not better than my old scores, certainly not 2500-3000 points less. That was my point.
As far as all chips not being the same, I agree. Some batches are better than others, however utilizing OC results from others with the same model chip may help to guide him in the right direction, especially if he's using too much VCORE.
