Im at 3.82 but its not dual prime stable at all. I need to up voltage more but I wanted to know around where I should stop raising the vcore and what my temp limit is.<br>
Remember that p4p800s lie about temps, speedfan says im at 32-34 idle and 48-50 load.

Well I have the same cpu and mobo and I was kind of wondering the same thing... I got around 3.825ghz with 1.45 vcore pretty stable but I run it at 3.84 - 3.86ghz....What is your vcore set at?

1.525 is about the max you want push a prescott with standard cooling. I have the same chip, and im at 3.79ghz @ 1.42v loading at about 48-50c

E0 or D0 stepping? Probably E0, I don't even know why I ask anymore. You can definitely go higher on the voltage though, up to 1.55v.

1.525 is the max for prescotts to be safe...

Well, who said anything about safe? I think with your cooling system though, you should keep it at or below 1.500.

Also you want to keep it under 65c load... for prescotts, most other chips max temp is about 55c. Prescotts are notorious for running hot... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown">

How about if you want it to last long... most hard overclockers have their cpus die in less than a year because of high vcore... Is 1.52v safe?

You ever seen a C0 revision chip? On the stock cooler they loaded at over 70C at stock clocks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> That is what gave the chip the nickname Presc"hott". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> The D0 is less hot and the E0 even less so, but still hotter than most 939 AMD's and 775 Preslers and the like.

i have had this oc for about 8 months... and no problems. There are other factors than just vcore for longevity for a chip. heat being the other important one. Yes higher vcore/heat lowers life... but usually the chip goes out of date before it dies.

I believe my voltage was 1.40 with this <a href="http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=75328" target="_blank">CPU-Z dump</a>.<br><br>
This PC is watercooled and can run 4.0 rock solid (12 hours dual prime, 24/7 for 1 week).

It means you have one of the latest revisions.<br />
<br />
I run mine at 3885 24/7 100% at 1.55 Vcore for ever (over a year). I have run it at 1.65 for months at a time to be stable at 4205 (watercooled). I have E0. a GOOD oc cpu IMO.<br />
<br />
Yes in general 1.4-1.5 is "safe" but with good cooling you can get some serious stable overclocks with a little more juice (1.55-1.65).

Latest means good right? Should be able to overclock well. Can't set voltages with my mobo though, crappy asrock boards.<br />
What would be a safe temp? I know 65c is max for prescott.

</div>You have an LGA775 chip, we are talking about mPGA478. But to answer your question; later revisions are better for the most part.
