Hmm...I'll like your way of thinking ^_* *cheers* mate wish u luck
Do you want 4.5ghz as a 24/7 clock? Or just for benching?
I might try that. I got mine to 3.9 a while ago, then I stopped. It sounds pretty good though. If you get yours to 4.5GHz and plan to keep it like that, I suggest you think about water cooling.

24/7 on air would be nice but cpu life will be at risk ??
so does anyone know what i can do again to attain 4.5 ghz i can get the multiplier up but i dont know what voltage the cpu will want and stuff(Im a OC noob)

4.5ghz is a bit high for a 24/7 clock IMO, there is no real difference from say 4.2-3 that you would notice outside of benchmarks.
^^ true dat i guess i want to see what my chip can do and then al be happy
Push to see how high you can get a CPUz validation, its pretty fun to get into the 4.7ghz+ range.
ok got it stable but temps are keeping me back where i live its 31 C room temp and system temps are 40 and max load in prime95 is 72,also i need a better heatsink
but reaching 4.5ghz was aite untili i upgrade heatsink
thx for your comments guys
72*C in prime isn't too bad. I've gone up to 88*C and never had problems.
