I am running 3.9Ghz @ 1.38v. Its stable and cool. I took it just over 4Ghz but had to raise the voltage above 1.425v and gained more unwanted heat so it wasn't worth the tiny gain in speed imo. This is a hardy cpu and can take the punishment, so max it until it bsod's then pull it just back to the sweet spot.
