cpuz is reporting the vid at 1.235v may stop prime and run 3dmark 11 but will probably give it an hour or so before i do that
Nice! For future reference, I wouldn't always follow the settings that guides recommend since CPU's aren't all the same despite the model.

well i hadnt ever oc'd a sandy system but took me over a week to get teh balls to do it the system has to last me 5 years before my wife will let me upgrade again it cost a small fortune if you see my sig rig you will see why lolz..

but again tnx for the help i hope the op sorts his issues out so far ive had 0 issues what so ever i got an email from the etailer i bought my mobo from.

asus will swap it out for the new revision free of charge they also stated that when the time comes ill get my new mobo shipped to me and ill just have to send my old one to them the guy who brings my new one will take this one with him but as i dont use the sata 3 interface i havent really got anything to worry about

And 24/7 folding.

I run 4.8 at 1.4v 24/7 at 100% load.

There's no reason a retail 2600k shouldn't do 4.8GHz. Check if there's a BIOS update for your board, if so grab it. Also make sure your RAM is manually set to its stock settings. Enable Load Line Calibration for your board. 1.45v is way more than you should need for 4.8GHz... my 2500k does 4.8 on less than that and it's not really anything too special.

Keep your temps under 80C for normal usage, but you can let them go higher for brief periods for stability checking/benchmarking.

Update your motherboard's BIOS if you want to go past 46x. Look for "Internal PLL Override" and enable it.

It should downclock to 1600mhz for normal use.

thats even better ;]

Ive heard they hit 4.4 on stock voltage.
I'd take it a little bit higher then stock voltage and see what could come out of it.
