    This. Also, will a filter list help prevent this? I remember a post/thread here before which made me add NoCoin to my filters.

    Isnt't the 3940 xm and the 3920 xm the exact same CPU in regard to overclocking ? Or has someone got better results with the 3940xm?
    4.5-4.7GHz from ssj92
    The 4.5-4.7GHz from ssj92 seem hard to beat.

    They're basically the same in regards to overclocking. It just comes down to the silicon lottery as to how far you can push it over 4ghz.

    It doesn't matter which one you buy, what matters more is the silicon lottery.

    I can easily hit 4.3Ghz on mine with no extra voltage.

    4.4Ghz requires a bit, 4.5Ghz even more, 4.6Ghz even more and 4.7Ghz requires a lot.

    4.8Ghz I have yet to perfect. I can boot and do basic stuff but it'll freeze after awhile and I already apply too much voltage.

    I think it's safe to say 4.2-4.3Ghz is obtainable no matter what. 4.5+ will depend how much voltage and heat you can deal with.

    I have similar results, I run 4.3 full time no extra voltage. I’m not keen on overvolting for daily use, only for benchmarks here and there. I hit 4.9Ghz with my 2920XM long enough to validate CPUZ

    I should also mention I run 4.3Ghz 24/7 not 4.7Ghz. No point in producing the extra heat and power unless I am benching. CPU doesn't bottleneck in games at 1080p with 780M SLI.
