Hopefully you can hit 4 ghz stable on it, its hard to guess though.

Start at 1.25v and keep working up.

so oc to 4ghz than start by puttin the voltage at 1.25 and if it doest boot hold page up and go up one more and what is the safe volatge for the i5 chip

^No,
I said start at 1.25v. After you set your system to 1.25v start increasing the bclock until it wont boot into windows. Then increase the vcore some more.

Read some guides on overclocking, you seem pretty clueless. Come back when you have questions.

Your wiring is pretty bad. you may want to re arrange your wiring and tuck in the wires to get better air flow. It just looks very messy. Better airflow = better cooling (overclock).

Also monitor your temps and you will also need to stress test yours cpu for stability. Use coretemp or realtemp for monitoring temps and prime95 for stress testing your cpu and ram. GL

lol thx for the input guys ok so i have been stress testing it at 3ghz for over an hour. the temps ave not gone over 49c yet is that a good temp for that mild OC ill go for 3.5 in a bit and tell you what i get.

and stress test at 3.45ghz stock voltage 51c max and very stable oh and overshocked the bios and overclocking on the ecs boards are really wierd and very confusing lol

one problem tho overshock when i brought the voltage up to 1.25v and 3.4ghz i got hardware errors in prime but with 1.248v and 3.4ghz i had no problems. :S

Could be any number of things man. I wouldnt worry about it because it is such a small difference in voltage. Especially if when it was at 1.248 the vcore was set to auto in the bios because it was probably sitting higher than 1.25, then drooping down to 1.28.

I would stress it for more then one hour. Make sure to test it for at least 10hrs with prime95. That is my magic stable number.
