Hi folks, welcome to 2014!

I had 1150 board and this little G3285 gem gathering dust, so I put together a ghetto email rig in my lab. I could hit 4.7 GHz at 1.315 V but the temps were completely out of control (90C+ on Prime Blend). This is what I have:


The setup is pretty barebones (notice the soldered on momentary switch); trying to keep costs low :)

Get a 212 and you'll hit 4.9GHz, maybe 5, below 1.4V.

And if it dies, well, won't be a big loss! ;)
