  1. Alright so here are the results for the overclock I applied today. Before you read the results I could have went higher, however the jump in Voltage was significant just from 4.5Ghz to 4.6Ghz which didn't seem worth it to me. I tested stability with Intel Burn Test on Maximum for 20 runs. Alot of people say that Maximum is too much and will crash your computer even when its stable, but I would rather be safe.
