ive been reading lost of tutorials and reviews and it seems that at the stock voltage they hit a wall around 2.58ghz then need to bump up the v core to go any higher, as they do say though all processors are different, i think you may have just got a good one. i know i did'nt

When u increase ur voltage u'll get higher temps, that why people like the mobile processors coz they already run cool coz of their lower voltages!!

Great overclock there Trance565
That's what I'll be wanting to achieve!

What did you chance the multipliers, fsb to to get it stable at that with your hardware?
