    that is true to my case even with stock cooler. but, i have to increase voltage to reach to 3 and again to 3.2 and again to 3.4. I think that beyond 3.4 it is not worth to squeeze the jucie. I have to go over 1.5 in my case because i have a very high vid ( 1.325 V). Otherwise it failed the prime test.
  3. all right thanks guys =D

    I don't have to worry about temps right? zalman 9500 cooler
