Thnks that pretty cool links, I do have a question however,

Is heat the only enemy? If i have a real kickass cooling system and crank up my fsb and my voltage, if i keep knocking up the voltage will it remain stable?

And if it does and my vcore hits max, is it possible to physically up the voltage goin to the CPU, I understand that my require sum electronic tinkering and thats always dangerous.

To put it in a nutshell (help I'm in a nutshell, sorry i couldnt resist) if the skies the limit, how high is the sky???

Accurate in what way? FPS? Furmark is just there to torture test really... Not to bench
