i was just wondering, i was looking at this site <a href="http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1075792" target="_blank">http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1075792</a> and i see that people has good overclocks with low vcores. right now i'm at 3.5ghz with 1.56v. i'm just amazed how other can have low vcore. i heard that 1.56v slowly damages the cpu thats why i'm a bit worried. my temps are ok though, just wondering how others can get a stable clock with low vcores

Um, if you are still running the stock NB cooler i suggest you get a better one. Both the extreme spirit II and the swiftech mcx159-cu are great replacements, I was able to get to 3.6ghz stable with the switch, so you might be able to use a lower vCore.<br />

I wouldn't be thaaaaaat worried about your vCore cus you are on water. But if you wanna run at a lower vCore checkout this thread: <a href="http://www.overclock.net/intel-motherboards/128741-c1e-control-p5w-dh-deluxe.html" target="_blank">http://www.overclock.net/intel-mothe...dh-deluxe.html</a>

I wouldn't go any higher than 1.5V on water and 1.4V on air unless it's for benching.<br />

Higher Vcore deteriorates your CPU.
