    Not sure if I should even try going any farther.. my temps are ok, but when I run Prime95, 5 out of the 6 workers won't run and I'm not sure what that means.

    My temps...

    It's your decision, but I would run it at 4.1 or 4.2. No need to push it as you wont see much difference. Post this in the other thread and I will add it to the leaderboard.

    Yea, I'm not planning to run it this high everyday. Just seeing how high it can go.

    Workers stopping or having errors means it is not stable. Usually needs more vcore.

    I agree with Steve, crank up the volts, just a little at a time.

    Okay, I upped the volts to 1.45 and that help quite a bit. All the workers continue with their self tests without stopping, however I can't let Prime95 run for very long, maybe a few minutes 5 at the most. My chipset's temp increases really quickly when running it.

    Okay! I think I have definitely met my limit. Just kept it running long enough to grab this screenshot. Validating, as you can see by looking at my temps, would have probably been to much and who knows what would happen to my chipset. I should look into a chipset cooler.

    Excellent job. Very well done. I bet you surprised yourself. No since in burning your rig up. You did exceptional. Just be careful. Overclocking can become habit forming, expensive too.
