    19 or 21 should be more stable than 22, at least be able to use less volts and easier to get stable anyway.

    You may need a stronger cooler if you want to get at 3.8Ghz or so. But if you can't buy one you should be ok, since our PC's never reach full load LinX temps except when we use LinX of course.

    Yea I figured we never really leave our rigs on full load 24/7 but when I run prime95 for some reason I never break 81C.
    My idle is only around 42~46C.

    Oh well, gonna run prime95 for the rest of the day and see where it gets me, if a worker stops gonna bump the QPI/VTT a notch and see if that doesn't do it.

    Wait a minute, prime95 gives you 81C? I thought you said LinX gave you 80-81C on your last reply, which is it?

    Generally LinX is 10+ hotter. Just wondering though so we could be sure of what you meant.

    Good luck with the testing and tweaking

    Yea forget about those temps.

    Well after much testing I think I finally got this thing stable, going on 7.5hrs strong on Prime95 no errors yet.
    Things I learned, this chip hates 20X and 21X (unless stock settings) and is a voltage hog, got this thing up at Vcore 1.3V and QPI/VTT 1.4~ in BIOS , had to turn off Hyper Threading because Prime95 made it hit temps of about 87~90C.

    Now if this thing is "stable". are those voltages too high and detrimental to my chip or am I in the "ok" area? and considering I am not at full load all the time, you think it be ok to turn Hyper Threading on? or is it not worth it if this is just a gaming rig?

    Thanks again for the helpful input, took about 5 days but almost done!

    i think youll be ok with those voltages and hyperthreading on,playing games wont put very much load on the cpu,even less with a decent card,remember to keep it on balanced profile so it wont run at full speed/voltages when its idle

    Ya, I agree, I think those are fine temps and voltages.

    Some CPU's are just volt hogs, nothing you can do about it. My last 5 or so CPU's have been that way, just recently got one that isn't so bad finally!

    HT on or off is up to you, since it makes things hot off may be your best bet and since you are a gamer that might be best anyway since it's been shown to perform better in most games with it off.
