I'm running a watercooling setup getting me no greater than 35C full load, and 22-25C no load. This is with 1.65v on the processor, but is this too much for this miracle chip? Anything less won't give me a prime stable 3 ghz cpu!

Great news, I was a little worried as nobody else it running high voltage. My processor is Prime stable for 8 hours, and SuperPi 32m stable, and OCCT stable @ app. 1.62v but it's not 3d stable. Sorta strange that 3d stability comes with actually more like 1.66-1.67v. My Opteron seems to like voltage a bit more than the other ones...

BTW - Not running chilled water, but it's in a really cold basement so that's why temps are the way they are. Plus a monster Bonneville HC & home made shroud.
