VERY Interesting... This is going to be a fun ride.
As for my previous post I was able to get my AMD Athlon running from 2.2GHz to 3GHz by using the 'pencil trick' or Connecting the L1 bridges on my CPU with a pencil which allows me to change the clock multiplier.
I know for this new build that I could probably get to 4GHz with my intel CPU by just increasing the FSB alone.. easy peasy it seems.. But with all of my high-grade parts, water cooling, and a good airflow case shouldn't I be able to get it to 5GHz stable by increasing the Multiplier, Bus Speed, and various Motherboard settings.. Maybe Veedubfreak and Peter.Cort know alot more than me that this is alot harder than I think it is, lol

How you just use that as a Rule Of Thumb? I've never needed to increase my voltage for anything.. soo.. if it is set too low and you try to boot up your system, what will happen?
And as for 5GHz being my goal.. I have to really push this thing to it's limits while being as stable as possible.. Thats the whole reason I am getting parts for free.. Nearly the latest parts on the market.. with some unknown hopefully 400$ or less water cooling system.. I want to see what it can do.
