A lot more voltage than it took for 3.9... i only needed 1.36ish at that speed... now i'm up to almost 1.46, and i can't get the thing to break 4.1 at even 1.5, so i guess i'll just leave it here... temps aren't going up much at all though... is that right? The CPU and DK are both lapped, but that still seems a little unreal...

The one time it actually booted over 4.1.

And then what i have it running at now... and what the flip is up with my temps? I was getting 75 C after 1 minute before, now i'm getting barely 60??

I always went by what the max voltage on the retail box said and went with that. But i suppose if you are passing primes, no severe temp increases, and that 3.9 to 4.1 jump is worth it to you, go for it :) I noticed on my e8400 I could stay at 1.36 and get 4.0 ghz, however to go to 4.2 ghz I had to go to 1.45v. dangerous.

Well, that jump is causing my PSU fan to sound like a jet taking off, so i think i'll stay at 4.0 lol

That's normally where i run it at.
For some reason i can't get it to run stable at 1.35 anymore though :(
I'm running it at the lowest voltage i can, and i'll probably run it like this until tomorrow night, and then try to pull the voltages back down :/ I swear, this is one of the pickiest Chips i've ever seen :(
