Im running at +0.05 and at load cpuz shows 1.24v, is tha ok? im getting 72 degrees max when running p95, ive done a 2 hours run
should I try go lower with the voltage? Is this good? And how much should I expect the chip to last at those settings?
thanks

You could probably go slightly lower in voltage but it won't blow up or anything at that level. 1.21-1.25 is perfectly normal from what I've seen. If you ran 2 hours in P95 that's a decent indicator that it won't blow up. A lot of overclockers are pretty anal about this though, and will recommend that you run it for a ridiculous amount of time. I had mine up to 4.5 and it was fine, but just like you I was concerned for how long it would last. And although there are no definite answers for your question (Ivy Bridge is still pretty new anyway), I tuned mine down to 4.2 just to make it more comfortable ;)
