I agree it will kill it eventually but it will take awhile.. Ive overclocked every pc ive ever built all the way back to my K6 II with 3d now 350mhz.. Ive never seen an cpu burn out tho as a side note..
had a stable 5.2ghz at 1.4v (only left prime95 running for an hour or so.. didnt want to push the chip too far. c14 is a hell of a cooler but it has it's limitations xD)
but currently im able to get a 24 hour prime95 on 4.8ghz at 1.259v (using 4.4 as 24/7 oc as i didnt notice a HUGE difference between 4.4 and 4.8).. give it a shot, but make sure u have a decent cooler. 30c idle 65c load.
Huh, what motherboard do you use then? At 5 ghz i cant go below 1.5v before it fails with prime.
I was kind of cheep with the mother board though, the standard asus p8z68-v
And the temps are no promblem. Got a ek waterblock and a 3x 120 mm fan radiator for 1 cpu
