SHADOVV, that's a nice overclock for your first own manual attempt. Don't worry so much about maximum speeds as much as maximum efficiency. If I remember reading right from your past posts, you seem to want to keep this this chip a while, rather than having gotten it just to push it as far as you can, so efficiency over brute numbers should be your approach. I'd bet you could get away with less voltage for that clock speed. Try taking off .1V and see what happens. Alternatively, you could try 3.6GHz (450x8) at the voltage you're on now. I'm betting that'll end up being your sweet spot. If your RAM is good, and your CPU doesn't need too much voltage, you may be able to get 4.0GHz (500x8) out of it, but I'd guess voltage levels would need to be much higher (at least than you'd like), and alot of tweaking would need to be done, so I'm guessing 3.6GHz would be the most efficient for you.
