Actually, my actual vcore is quite a bit lower than what I'm setting in BIOS. BIOS setting: 1.15v. Actual voltage according to CPU-Z, PC Probe, etc.: 1.1v.

My results might not be typical, but my E6400 is rock solid stable at 1.1v overclocked to 2.712 Ghz. This is on a P5B Deluxe.

I suspended a WD2500KS in a P180 using 1.8mm Stretch Magic. Not very original, but it works. :lol:

I would have jumped on the deal at Newegg if it weren't for the $25.50 sales tax, though. :?
