I want to know your guys' thoughts on how high I could be able to OC the CPU. Also, my PC is in my basement so it's cooler than a normal desk space.

When you've got your OC all fine tuned, I recommend submitting it to my new survey.

was considering that. don't think i'll make it into the HOF, but it's worth a shot lol

Even if you don't, it helps with the main goal of the survey, to document all of the overclocking done on PCPP.

Please ignore him. This is how you fry your board and CPU. 1.7V is a TON of voltage.

Paul's hardware just put a CPU to 1.9 volts no frying in sight

Yes but we're not talking thermals im Talking voltage.

more voltage is what is used to apply a higher OC, which is what results in more heat. This is why you can generally apply more voltage to a CPU under LN2.
