Also about how much life does the extra voltage take from the CPU? Like how long can I expect this CPU to last? Please don't reply with "you'll upgrade before it dies".
Bump the vcore another notch, see if you can get to 274.You only need 3 more on the ref clock for 3.7.so close.
As for the extra voltage,you shouldn't need to worry until you get over 1.55v.
1.55v is the recommended max for air cooling.
But we won't be going that high.
It will still last a good long time below 1.5v.
If you are worried about the volts we can always back the oc down to 3.6(still a 900mhz oc).
Also you might want to consider getting some of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-011-_-Product
