Try and stay under 1.36 if you want to keep it for the next year. If you only want to wait until Nehalem, keep it under 1.5.

So under 1.5 drops the lifetime and under 1.36 doesn't???What do you recommand for 4ghz????I really want to get it there...

It depends..mine runs at 4.0ghz at 1.345.

If you are running it 3.8ghz at 1.35..I would just tell you to forget it.

If you are chip can clock higher at that Vcore, great. But I wouldn't go higher.

1.3625v is the recommended highest vlotage by intel. My e8400 does 4ghz on 1.3v and 4.15ghz on 1.344v. From what i've heard the earlier batches were the best overclockers.
My vid is 1.115v
