CPU overvolt questions

I currently have a Phenom II x6 1065t.

Stock core is 2.9ghz with turbo to 3.4 (which never happened on it's own)

I've used my mobo to OC it to 3.680 (253.84x14.5) and because I have a locked multiplier I'm wondering if over volting the cpu from stock 1.3v to 1.350/625 would help me push the OC higher.

I completed 9 hours 52 minutes of Prime 95 on blend (close enough to 10 hours) with no errors or warnings with the current OC

Try IntelBurnTest to really push your system. What is the current temp of the system? If its low enough you can crank up the volt. Make sure its not on the point where it might overheat before trying to push more out of it.

Idle's at 30-35*c and prime pushed it to 61*c but no higher.

I'll give intel burn test a shot.

That's a pretty steep over volt, where did you get that number from?

And why is staying under 62*C important? Lots of people push it to 70-75*C.

Why is intel burn worse than prime 95? (everyone says use prime so that what I used)

Right now i'm using an OEM cooler, but I"m debating a H100 or a high end air cooler (which I'll pick up tomorrow with my new PSU)

It's just a big jump going from 1.3625 to 1.4875 lol, that is all. (healthy skepticism of potential trolls because it was so far off from what I was at)

I need better cooling before I push it further; hence today/tomorrow depending on your time zone. Thank you for the stats.

PS: Where did you find out what the threshold for damage is for the phenom IIs ? I've never heard that number before.

Expect a PM from me when I get my new cooler.

Thank you.
