    Good point. Though I've overclocked this CPU a dozen times and ran it at higher clock speeds over a long duration up until I kept having BSOD issues caused by conflicting drivers, etc. I've had this CPU for almost 5 years now. Luckily it hasn't failed me yet.

    For 3.71GHz what would you guys recommend me setting the CPU voltage to? Because I set it at 1.47v in my BIOS.
