is this an stable overclock ? 24/7 usage ?

i was able to reach 4ghz but just for few minits, see the pics below

If you are worried about your chip dying on you, then no. If you can't make an hour of OCCT, then I would say it isn't stable.
That is a lot of voltage on your chip, if you are on great water cooling in a room that stays cool, then you may be alright. If not, you are asking for trouble.

Nice work on achieving the OC, though. That's Awesome!!

Could someone tell me which one I should use? They are both stable, and I guess you guys can pick out which Cpu-z is which:

four cores are much better than three, I'm using four cores @ 3.2GHz and it's a great performance boost in comparison to 3 cores in most games i play.

I agree with darklord27. With more and more games taking better advantages of more cores, you're much better off in most cases to go with the quad setup. Your results are very similar to my own, and I chose the quad. I was able to get 3.7 Ghz at x3, and 3.5 at x4...no brainer, really.

The only reasons to not go quad are 1) it takes too much voltage to keep it stable and therefore 2) it runs too hot, and so 3) your cooling just makes too much darn noise. If yours is all in check, go quad.

It depends on what games you play.

Some games will run better on 3 cores with more MHZ. But you are only talking a couple hundred mhz, so I would still say go with the quad if it is stable.

I probably wouldn't buy this chip if I were out to build right now, but I've been hugely satisfied with mine. A 3.5 Ghz quad that I bought in March of last year for $120? Incredible. I can't see needing to upgrade in the near future either...this is the best system I've ever created.

your post is just so..contradicting, 1 - you claimed you wouldn't buy this chip if you were to built right now, that's cool cus there are a lot options now and this chip is 1.xyr old already. but yet 2 - you stated that this is the best machine you've built so far and wouldnt be needing an upgrade anytime soon" - so..wahts the deal bro? lol. im just saying, with the amounts of OC updates still being posted in this thread, im amaze that ppl are still buying this chip..being a yr old chip..
