    on air I would not go over 1150mv. myself I am at 1113mv. the higher you go the more unsafe it becomes. temps do play a big role. high temps + high volts= disaster. great temps and high volts should be ok nothing written in stone though.

    Thx for the answers for now im at 950/1900/2200 @ 1125, ill go up to 1150 I think.

    What temperature do you think I should not get to @ 1150mV ?

    thanks

    edit: I get 70° @ battlefield bad company 2 all settings at max in 1080p, while at 70° the fan is running @ 70%.

    Do you think I should try 1138 and 1150 if yes what temps do you advise me not to get to ?

    I keep mine under 80C. Youre safe at 70C for sure.
