    Probably - although mine idles at around 35-40 even before UVing.
    And speaking of which, I've decided to hold at 1.025V for 11x. It's 0.2V below stock, drops my temps by QUITE a sizable margin (not sure how much though, as my room temp's dropped too), and hasn't caused a thermal trip once through 35 minutes of ORTHOS.
    All the other multipliers seem stable too.
    I'll give it some 3DMarking and a little bit of TF2, and get back to you.

    Heh - it'd be great if I ultimately UV my CPU and OC my GPU (or at least its shaders).

    EDIT: Ran a few 3DMark06 runs w/o any CPU problems...it's just that Deep Freeze is running about 3 fps slower for some reason I don't quite know. Going to TF2 now.

    EDIT 2: TF2 ran just fine. I think I'm gonna let this thing run ORTHOS for most of tomorrow before I pass official judgment on its stability.

    Unvervolting won't affect idle temps.

    I idle at 24-26c on my DV9700T and with undervolting I have load temps of 43-45c now. I used to reach 60c before I undervolted.

    My 8600GS card idles at 46-48c and load so far is 53c

    The main benefit for me is the extra battery life. I have 2 hard drives in my notebook so I lose about 20 minutes of battery life with the extra HD, but gain 30 with undervolting.

    Of course it will, less voltage = less heat! even at idle!

    Not in my experience, it only affects load temps. Umm, Mostly because the lowest multiplier on the penryn is already volted to the lowest amount at .950 :p
