Entirely up to you, its your rig, but my rig has gone from 4.7@1.35v when I built it to 1.45-1.48v after a year and a half of almost 24/7 full load and staying under 70c. Worse case scenario is I'd have to bump voltage again or lower the OC, which I have no problem with.

go with the 4.6ghz. you will never notice the absence of that 100mhz. you wouldnt know the difference if you were at 4.5ghz either. take it easy on your chip, cooling, psu and mobo. just run 4.5ghz because it takes less voltage, runs cooler, and is still fast as hell.

I'd be a bit nervous running 1.4V constantly, let along 1.48V. Go with the 4.6GHz.

Part of that may be attributed to the chip breaking in. How quickly did it begin to degrade?

8 or 9 months or so I think.

That's strange. I recall one person doing 24/7 load at 1.408v on air for seven months and having to bump up to 1.45V for the same speed.
I'm shocked that your chip degraded that much at only 1.35V. Maybe your motherboard had a voltage monitoring issue, similar to the Asrock extreme 6?

from what i remember reading last year, asus was another that reported lower vcore than actual. msi was the only board anyone reported as giving correct vcore in windows programs

What about Gigabyte; In Sin's reviews, their boards appear to actually be giving the correct voltages.

No idea. My in Windows voltage is usually around .05-.08 higher than what's set in the bios with manual voltage.
I'm using offset now, thats set to .198 I think, .205 at the most (one or two steps before it gives the red warning), windows gives me the 1.45-1.48 under load and idles 1.424 at the lowest.

But the displayed voltage can be much lower than the voltage that you would get from a multimeter.
