Go into bios and drop fsb bus say 186 and turn speed spectrum on , set voltage to 1.35v with v droop and leave memory as is in 2:8

As just a safe starting point and work the fsb up till more voltage is needed as I am boosting from 2.8Ghz down clocked to 4.3 turbo like that and it runs good for me in dual channel mode https://valid.x86.fr/mr8z5x with out the high heat of full clocks all the time , mine has 2 turbo mode (performance turbo leave off) and I am thinking of adding a little voltage to the fsb just for the 3400Mhz clock speed as single thread is like gaming I guess so it should match a 1600X in IPC for gaming .

it really is amazing what this platform can still pump out, though my poor little board doesn't much like running high bclk, or, rather, it can, but i don't like having to point fans at my chipset heatsink because this is a fairly mobile system XD i think im going to get a pair of X5680s come payday (a pair so i have one spare in case i kill one while benching or something) with that said i got a new gpu the other day and it's amazing that this platform can still pump out a score like this: https://www.3dmark.com/fs/19876642

here if cooled reasonably well do we reckon that 1.45v would be okay for daily?

Yes but expect "slight" degradation at those voltages even on dual rad custom waterloop. This is from my own experience. Nothing to worry about if you expect to upgrade in a few years and those "slightly" if even degraded chips of mine can still do 4ghz on air for light loads to this day.

Ahh that's fine then, realistically I bounce from platform to platform quite often and I pretty much always have spares, I'm thinking of moving up to an X5680 and just running whatever 1.45v gives me from that and also buy say a W3670 as a high multi spare or something since the two of these are rather cheap now
