Windows 7: Your opinion for Intel Xeon E5620 CPU ( Video editing, gaming )

My CPU even didnt break on 5GHz with 1,65V VCore on Server Motherboard
The Xeon X5650 i have is similar to the E5620 but has 2 cores less
so why should it break?

Because all the work it has to do when it's @ 4.0 GHz.

Ok Laith, do you think 3,8 GHz / 3,6 GHz will be safe enough ?

But it's a bit confusing me that according to you on 4 GHz the CPU will break but on 3,8 ghz it wont, I mean there's not a big difference it's just 0,2 GHz we're talking about.

Anyway, thanks for your replies

It's not a big difference but i think the CPU will handle that clock.

Dont get me wrong Laith, but since I am not sure about this by myself since I have never done it, I need answers only of those who are absolutely sure and not just " think so ", you know.
My point was, what makes you think it will not handle 4 GHz but it will handle 3,8 ghz ? Not a big difference as you said, it's just that I am new here and I wanna learn from people who are absolutely sure and will not lead me to mistakes, you get me ?

But hey, thanks again man

Your going to have a tough time finding a lot of people that over clock
Xeons. Xeons were not intended to over clock.

What I have noticed is you don't state what cooling for the cpu you are using and what temps you are running at 1,65V VCore or what load test you did at that voltage. That is extremely high volts.

Spec for Xeon X5650
TCASE 81.3C

I don't know of any way of telling what over clock any cpu can handle unless you try it and watch the vcore volts and temp of the cpu.

1,65V VCore is in the toaster range.

I used an EKL Brocken air cooler with JouJye 7400RPM Fan

My Ivy Bridge CPU also didnt break even with high voltages

Well as Jack said, it's gonna be tough overclocking it but if it's a must need then you can always try. What i was thinking was if your friend broke 5 GHz then the CPU should be able to tolerate extreme overclocking but in my opinion anything over 4 GHz is a little too monstrosity. I mean you can overclock to 4 GHz no problem at all if you have good cooling but be careful when doing it. I would recommend overclocking to 3.5 GHz if you are gonna overclock.
