CONGRATS, now go buy yourself a QX9650 and do the same thing and let us know how it works out. It could last 10 years or 10 weeks, want to take that chance with a QX9650? If money is no object for you I'll PM you my address and you can send me one and I'll try it. :D

 

4 months isn't tremendously long, especially if it wasn't full load most of the time. Try running a 45nm CPU for a year or two at that voltage though - bet it bites the dust before that time is up. When the CPU is only specified to run at 1.35V, 1.6 is really pushing it, as you are WAY over the voltage limit intel set for that CPU.
