    Fellow i5 3570K users, how have you found overclocking? I managed 4.2 with +0.030 offset, which runs under max (prime95/blend)load at around 1.320 vcore.

    Couldn't get the bastard stable (at 4.2) at any lower voltage, bit cheesed off as I thought I'd be able to hit 4.4 easily (have a good cooler). Auto voltage option running @ 4.4 shows vcore at 1.344 @ max load, temps acceptable.

    Thing is, both those voltages seem damn high to me, and the internet overclocking guide consensus seems to be that anything over 1.35 is a bit dodgy. I really want to push for 4.4, but am a bit wary. Any thoughts/advice?
