The sabertooth is a good board, but it is NOT for ultra-high-end overclocking.

I should've gotten an EVGA classified, or Rampage III Extreme.
I had no qualms at using 1.58v to get 4830MHz. Nothing died, except me a little with each nerve wracking reboot.

People argue about it but generally 8 to 24 hours without errors for Prime95.....Opinions vary.

Not a bad mark, but I'll stick with my old one, because it doesn't have the obscenely high Vcore 4.84 required.

The sabertooth is a good board, but it is NOT for ultra-high-end overclocking.

Cold, cold, cold. That is what will help you.
I'm not sure what your climate is but use mother nature to your advantage.
I will be in an contest benching on air soon and I will use outside air and should be able to do over 5 GHZ with this 920
The E8700 in my sig was with outside air, that chip was on fire at 4.5.

No. Let it run over night. Try OCCT as well only need an hour for that.
For stability I run a lot of different tests because you can't always trust synthetic tests.

There was an ice storm today... I can haz cold?

I live in maryland.


WE AINT DONE YET FOLKS

Let's assume I just take the most basic protocols, say, open my window and lower the temperature in my room to between 0 and 5 degrees Celsius. If I do this, how much voltage can I put in my chip, without risking its harm?

Like NoGuru said, it is cold that will help. Adds about 200mhz for 20C drop in temp, and you may or may not need increased vcore. I wouldnt be surprised if you just need same vcore, around 1.55v by cpuz (may set little more in bios depending on your vdrop).

1.55-1.58 cpuz vcore (bios up to about 1.6 I still get little vdrop with LLC on) is sweet spot on mine at 5-8C ambient temp range. Too high vcore and it causes instability.

I set my computer outside on deck, run cords inside so I am warm. But placing a box fan next to open window blowing cold directly onto mobo (computer case open) will get you there as well.

This is a perfect answer. And I do the same thing, set the PC by a Window and use a box fan to blow into...well back when I used a case...right into the PC.

Maryland is cold as hell! Be a real PC enthusiast and get outdoors!!!

IT IS DONE.

THAT WAS THE HARDEST OVERCLOCK EVER. IN THE END IT ALL CAME DOWN TO HOW EACH LITTLE ELECTRON WAS FEELING TODAY XD.

I did it by keeping my window open, and thus keeping the room I am in at about 2 degrees Celsius. Did I mention it's my bedroom, and I'm freezing right now?

I finally got it to boot into windows... about every one in five tries.

It then preceded to bluescreen while the mouse was over "validate" NO LESS THAN SIX TIMES.

I had the chip running at 15 degrees celsius. To keep each little electron happy, I was shutting down for a minute between each attempt just to get the thing to boot into windows.

The first thread I see when I come back to OCN, victorious at last, is someone complaining that their SB chip requires 1.53 volts to be STABLE at 5 ghz.

LOL.

STILL TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Thank you so much NoGuru, Opt33, and AlanCSalt for all your marvelous help! This ones for you guys!
