Max baseclock with stock voltages?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am able to get a maximum baseclock of 155 with stock voltages on my i7 860. How good is this considered?

FYI, I am going to start increasing my voltage soon to overclock. My stock load temps do not exceed 48C. This is my very first time overclocking.

OH. And for the reference, I am using OCCT for stress testing.

Can't tell much from that to be honest, whack it up to 4GHz, most chips require around 1.31-1.34 so if you're anywhere below that you've got a decent one.
