I used this calculator. http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine
What the hell?
NO MORE than 1.5v in a phenom 955 to reach 4 ghz. You will degrade that CPU. Infact, its probally too late, that cpu is toast.

That was a mispost, vcore is 1.478 @ 4ghz, not 1.7 When I saw people response I started laughing, just a mispost so it's alright.
