I'm running a Core i7-920.

Was wondering if anyone knows of any problems or issues that can arise from using a pretty high base clock speed with a low CPU multiplier? As opposed to the normal of the highest cpu multiplier as possible and a fairly lowish base clock?

Cheers :)

It'll vary. Run prime95 or similar to test stability on your CPU. memtest for ram.

If you use a high base clock, you run everything else in your system faster aswell as the CPU.
