I said screw 3.6.... Now running stability tests @ 3.8. Took a bit more voltage to get to 3.8 but I look to have it stable @ 1.42vcore :) Hopefully tomorrow I will post up a sweet arse screeny. If not, then I'll retest @ 3.6 and post that.

I couldn't get her stabilized @ 3.8 with the temps pushing in to the low 70's so I backed her down but gave her a bit more than the 1.3 I was using and let her ride at 1.35.... here she is :)
