Default electron migration and **** :)

due to the fact that
1. I didn't need the excess power for the moment since I'm barely using the p4 setup these last few days. (no gaming, lotsa office work to catch up, hot weather)
2. I got a bit scared seeing what happened with the overclockability on the ^p4 after exposing it to high voltages for some benching time (it went down!)

I decided to find a sweetspot.

what I needed was
1. a totally primestable setup
2.a vcore that (almost ) never went above 1.70 (to be sure it wouldn't cause any trouble, since multiple sources speak of 1.75+ vcore problems)
3.highest possible corefrequency that could take 1 and 2

I got to 3020 mhz at a mean of 1.66 Vcore primestable.
should be fast enough to get me thru the next few months with no danger whatsoever.

idle = 47 under roomtemp
stressed = 38's under roomtemp

3Ghz+ is fast enough for me.

If I were you I'd concentrate on serious GPU cooling instead of CPU. 3.0 or 3.3 Ghz makes less differance than 330Mhz - 360Mhz GPU i assume...
HTPC (mac osx): Mac Mini | Core Duo 1.6Ghz | 2GB DDR2 | 26\" TFT
Development (mac osx): Macbook | Core 2 2.0Ghz | 4GB DDR2 | 250GB HD
Games (win xp): E2160 @ 2.4Ghz | HD3850 OC | Asrock 4coredual-vsta | 2GB DDR2
