Decided to overclock my I7 860 2.8 ghz, got it to 3.5ghz, and seems stable, started my voltage at 1.25000, MB is a Gigabyte P55A-UD3, do you all think the voltage is fine or should I go higher, also temps are 55c just normal uses, got one core to 83c under a full load stress test, after like 8 mins, think this ok also? any feedback or ideas are welcome.
