Yupp. As low as it gets. May have to up it one more. But I see ppl getting 4.5 at 1.2v withe the same temps. That's y it bothered me.

IT all depends on the specific hardware Pat, Dude was kicking our butts with a stock Intel cooler. Some can OC to 4.8 at 1.2V, others need 1.4 or so.

digging up an old thread here....

after some testing i got stable at 4.5GHz fully

in prime 95, the temps hit ~75C @ ~1.2V. while gaming i seem to hit ~65C @ 1.216V. This is with an ambient temp of ~27C. How do you think these numbers are? do you guys think its safe for 24/7/365 usage? I game for hrs on end too.

Sounds Okay Patrick, especially for Prime. Volts are good on the lower end too. I don't start worrying till the CPU gets to 90C, I have Core Temp overheat protection set to shut down at 95C in one second.
