    So here is my setup

    Asus Crosshair V Formula
    AMD FX-4100 3.6 stock clocked to 4.8GHz
    8GB Mushkin DDR3 1866MHz


    My settings are currently:

    Basically i've just bumped the multiplier up to 24x and and VCore to 1.506V even though it shows 1.464V on the CPU-Z picture. What is the MAXIMUM SAFE Voltage?? I feel like 1.500V is already kind of pushing it, but its the only way to keep the system stable.


    What do you guys think I can do to squeeze more out of this thing?

    I've running the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO with 2x fans attached so the PC hums at about 33C idle and 48C is maximum i've seen on load so heat isn't a problem.

    All 4 cores are also still enabled.

    Had to increase VCore to 1.550V to keep it stable here. Runs about 50C at full load for 30 minutes of prime. Whats the safest VCore before I fry this thing?

    Anyone know if having a VCORE over 1.550V is bad if i'm running stable at 4.8GHz around 47C stress testing now. Runs idle 35-36c.

    Your mobo may start melting at any time, i'm not kidding there's a thread in the AMD cpu section, Pill Monster's ugrade thread i believe.

    LOL in what sense?

    I've knocked it up to 1.600VCore so far but 5.0GHz just will not post...

    Any suggestions?

    I've got so many oogles of options on the motherboard it's ridiculous.
