You're going to get around 2.35 or so on air. It takes mine 1.72 volts to get to 2.5 and then there are no gains at higher voltages. 2.5 is about it for a 3000+ NewCastle. There are a few that may claim higher, but they are either not Prime stable, or really lucky.

EDIT: I see you have the Zalman 7000 ALCU. I used that same cooler on my 3000+ NC. At 2.35, you will see load temps approach 50°C. As I fold 24/7, that's where I stopped my OC until I got my water setup. I did not want to cook my CPU at that temp 24/7.

I completely forgot to mention my vCore for 2.35! Sorry about that. It was 1.62 or so to get a prime stable 2.35. I was using a 2x512MB Ballistix kit at that time, so I knew the RAM was stable.

Yea, I get on AIM. I'm at work right now so no AIM. But I'll be home tonite after 9 PM my time, but am not sure of my schedule. I tend to be a busy person (keeps me out of trouble ) I have to change my AIM name in my profile. You'll have to give me your AIM name though as I have my secruity set to "Only Users On My Buddy List" that can IM me.
