1.38v isn't that bad for 3.2ghz on this chip, well from what i've seen. I had to give it 1.43+v untill I did the pencil mod.

I wouldn't go any higher then that. And actually, I don't like going that high myself, but I do it for folding. And this thing is a beast at almost 3.7Ghz.


EDIT:
The didn't work well. Here's a better shot...

My chip won't do 3.6 unless you have 1.5v stable on the v-core.
Anything over that up to 3.8Ghz requires 1.51volts. I haven't had the gonads to take it over 3.8Ghz.. lol
But I've read 1.5v+ is bad for long term use on these chips. I'm not sure I like it this high, but when it dies it will give me a good excuse to jump to something new..

If your motherboard has any v-droop, then the pencil mod stabilizes it a little, or fixes it completely.
For example, set you v-core in your BIOS (1.35)to a set limit.
When you enter windows, on idle, the v-core will be a bit lower(1.348) then what you set in your BIOS.
Then when your CPU gets 100% load across all cores, the voltage will normally be a bit lower.(1.345)
Some board have quiet a bit of V-droop, others don't have any.
My P35 board had about .42 v drop, which really caused hell on my OC.
My EVGA has a pencil mod that fixed mine completely.
