You can't really compare voltages between an older AMD chip to a new Sandy Bridge i7. They are completely different beasts.

If you had the same chip however, then you could be pissed

LB is right, it isn't fair...
Only things I did were... bump the multiplier and manual adjust the vcore to 1.2..left everything else on auto as I'am still learning...If any of the pro's think I can do a few things to make it better please shoot me a message!!.. I also think I can go lower on the vcore, I just ran out of time to play with it last night.
Also tell me what info if any you would like to see and I'll see if I can get a snip of it.

Temps etc look good - but 2hrs isn't enough to consider it stable.

I've never called it stable, as I'm still playing with settings and trying things out.
Thanks for letting me know a 2hr run isn't enough...

I'm new to this so how long would you say I should run Prime95 for to call an OC stable??

Any other good test I should know about?

I would run Prime95 overnight and also run LinX overnight as well to be 100% sure. LinX not only tests full load, but also different turbo modes as well as idle modes to make sure your system is more stable.

Ok here is the "New OC" with a long run on Prime95(12+hrs)!

Can this be called "Stable" now?? Or do I need to run some other test? If so what test should I go for?

the best test is time.

use it every day, doing different things, especially games or anything that will really push the processor(s).

if it crashes, crank the clock back a bit.
