Looks good, stock volt on mine was 1.18 and for 4 ghz for the last 4 months is 1.24 so you should be able to keep yours at that 24/7 and never hurt it with those temps or volts. Very nice.

Gigabyte P35 DS3R
Got it for free actually. I built a pc for a guy I used to work with and his house got nailed by lightning, and his mobo fried. I told him to just go out and buy a new one and I would install it for free and I kept the damaged one and had it RMA'd.

Well it was totally useless to him, the RMA took several months anyways, and he wanted his pc back up asap.

the P45 is far more capable than anything out there.and it will max ANY CPU processor in normal condition if you are pushing it to the limit. what i mean by normal is aircooled and watercooled and no fancy cascade or LN2 cooling.

any processor will choke out smoke before the p45 will.

Unless you have phase change cooling i wouldnt take it higher, Make sure thermal throttling is enabled in your bios otherwise your cpu will blow its lunch.
If you really want to brag why dont you post a super pi time here, overclocking without stability is like a fat bloke ice skating, good to see but u know its gonna fall over.

cheers

sorry mogwilson that rig is not mine.its simply a friend i know and ask him to post here to give him a guide. or maybe you got jealous....hum...looks like it.

if you are kind enough to ask in this forum, even you disable TM2 in BIOS your CPU simply WOULDNT BLOW TO PIECES!
