Please keep in mind that although this processor is unlocked, we do not recommend over-clocking the processor above 3.8 GHz.
This is because that is the maximum tested speed that Intel can confirm that the processor will be running at a stable behavior.
If the processor is over-clocked above 3.8 GHz, the processor will be running out of specifications, so Intel cannot guarantee that the processor will be running at a stable behavior.
Also over-clocking the processor above 3.8 GHz will void the processor warranty.

Hi sir ,
Yes i fully understand that the garantee is not available if this processor is overclocked , but the garantee is not necessary for me
if these cpu is broken i can buy a new one .
I just want to know , wich voltage is "acceptable" for this processor .
The datasheets of other processor show the VID max exemple 0.85v to 1.45v
But i can't find the VID range for the Sandy Bridge 2600k.
Some people say 1.38v maximum , is it right ?
