yeah but still, it seems like a good batch ... with a bit of luck i'll be able to push mine to 4,2 with my xiggy
i hit 4.275 ghz easily with my e8500 eo with a xiggy
OP: have you messed with the reference voltages? It might help you get it more stable

no. I just buy/sell a lot to fund my hobby and look for good chips. I am always honest when I sell a chip.

I will say that after about 17 wolfies and 6 or 7 Yorkfields I have not seen a single piece of evidence of any sort of degradation. I try to keep them under 1.45V for 24/7 voltage, usually find anything above 1.42-1.43 gives diminishing returns.

I like to think of myself as a somewhat experienced overclocker, I have read articles and messed with the GTL refs but cannot for the life of me actually understand what I'm doing with them. I leave them on auto. I "sort of" understand what they do but it would really help if someone could explain in more laymans terms in what circumstances I need to raise/lower them.

I have heard that you want to keep the GTL refs so that when they are multiplied by the VTT you are as close to .8 as possible, but this has never helped stability for me in any way.

the gtl reference voltages involve a lot of math behind them lol
i THINK you multiplied your VTT's by .63 and you would find it, but I could be wrong
