As long as you have reasonable temps, voltage and it's stable, you should be fine.

I probably wouldn't issue a blanket statement like "if temps are good, let'er buck." Of course if your temps are fine and you're stable then you're good. That's like saying "If you run across the street and don't get hit by a car then you're fine."

4.4 is pushing it. You're at that border crossing now, at least if you're going to keep HT on. You may have that golden egg chip that people are often found boasting about in here that hits 4.8ghz on 1.1v- but probably not.

You're going to need to adjust a lot more of the settings as well- depending on whether or not you're planning on folding at 4.4 (100% all the time w/ HT on) or just gaming for a few hours at a time with HT off. You're going to notice as you reached 4.2 that your voltage curve was pretty linear and proportional- while coming into 4.4 you're going to notice a pretty sharp increase in voltage vs mild increase in performance. Dropping HT will help... but not sure what you're going to do with it.

Despite my earlier sarcasm, I understand why the guys above just said "Yeah, do it. Watch your temps. Be stable." It's because you didn't really give us any information. We get no system information short of what your bios is, chip you have, amount and quantity of RAM and your OS.

People come in here all the time and post questions like "I'm a noob. I have a computer. I want to reach 8ghz on air but only use 1.1v..."

So don't be that guy, and if you actually come in here wanting some help- then show us what you want to accomplish and what you've already done. At least show that you've done some reading and aren't just in here wanting someone to hold your hand.

I hit 4.8ghz fine on 1.2v with HT off- it's stable.

No I didn't. But yet people come in here stating that all the time and want to push further. Why? No, seriously... why?

What is fine by your definition? How stable are you? What are your plans? What are your current settings...

You know- that kind of stuff. The help is here, but first, you have to show that you've helped yourself.

Well, that's my opinion anyway.

Your post makes no sense. As long as he has a stable voltage and temps he should be fine. I'm sure OP doesn't mind pushing his chip as far as it goes. I mean hell, my E5300 @ 4.21Ghz w/ 1.5V's. I know it's not recommended, but temps are good. If it dies, I will replace. I don't see why you're rambling.

But anyways, OP. Like I said, if your temps are good and voltage isn't too high. You should be fine.

I don't see why you would bother posting a repeat. OF COURSE he's fine if his temps are good and his voltage isn't "too high."

What, pray tell are "good" temps and what do you define as "too high." You don't know if he's on air, you don't know if he's got an HTPC case. You don't know what his version of stable is... so how do you expect him to know what "good" temps are and what is "too high." 456 if he knew any of this stuff already he wouldn't be in here asking.

Outstanding.
