My 965 runs on a M4A89TD Pro mobo at 4.5 Ghz stable all the time. I can take it up to 4.7 Ghz but do not want to stress it that much :) It is water based cooling.
Was a fantastic processor while it lasted... Gaming, video encoding, farming... all very good. Unfortunately is not longer the best option because of the new instructions and IPC.
