Then try 4.8GHz at 1.4V. If it works, try to find the lowest voltage you can run 4.8GHz stable at.
If it doesn't, try to find the highest multiplier you can run stable with 1.4V. Once you find the multiplier, then find the lowest voltage you can run that multiplier stable at.
Not all chips are created equal unfortunately. For every chip out there that can do 4.8GHz at 1.35V, there's probably a chip out there that can only do 4.4Ghz at 1.35V.
Sounds like a plan, Thanks. rep'd

Its simple if you dont feel comfortable doing it then don't. But get the idea of other peoples chips and their voltages outside of your mind, or you will make it even harder on yourself.
Yea that's what I did with my E8400, just adopted someone's oc settings and voila, worked like a charm @ 4ghz for almost 3 years, until I built this machine.
