I'll take what you say as fear mongering, because you seem to be under the delusions that 100mv is a lot.
I would hardly consider myself fear mongering, I just don't see how packing more volts into a more densely-packed cluster of transistors, no matter how much cooler they run, will turn out well.
Sorry if my earlier post sounded pissy, but to me it just doesn't make sense why someone would do that to their incredibly nice new chip, when performance that is nothing short of bonkers can be had at much safer voltages (Sub 1.4 for 5 Ghz!)
Maybe I'm just "old fashioned", but then again, that would be extremely ironic considering I only started overclocking 3 months ago.
EDIT: For the love of god, don't accuse me of bashing SB. I literally founded the frickin club against people bashing SB, so please don't accuse me of bashing it. I think it's a phenomenal chip, and it pretty much kicks the pants off of 1366. Anyone who denies it has their head in the sand.
