Hey guys, I currently have my i7 920 at 3.80GHz, 1.345V vcore and everything else on default/auto. I'm very happy with the performance but I'm a bit concerned about chip degradation :). Are those clock and voltage values high enough to seriously shorten my proc's lifespan or can I sleep calm at night? I'm considering dropping it to 3.66.

downgrade it man .you dont need 3.8 ghz for anything.
for gaming definately your gfx card will be a bottleneck more than your cpu.
in my opinion 3.2 ghz will be enough from that chip.
