  1. Depends on a lot of things, such as: ambient temperature (temperature around your room), speed aiming for, motherboard, and case airflow.

    ambient temp=20-25C,
    4.2GHz OC,
    ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3,
    Corsair 650D (all cables are out of way from air circulation)
  3. Best answer
    Every chip is different. There is no way to tell you without testing your individual chip. So the only way to know is to try. Keep the temps in the upper 60s - low 70s C running Prime 95 and keep your voltage under 1.4v ( under 1.38v just to be sure is best).
