At 1.55 I think maximum i can go is around 4.6. So it's pointless me adding a loop.
there are a lot of story's about the max voltage of the 8350 also about temps there are a lot of crazy story's and i want to make something clear.
1.55 is not the max voltage of that chip and those who say that has no clue on what they are talking about clean and clear
i called AMD some time ago and they said that it has nothing to do with voltage but the temperature of the chip.
the max threshold of these chips is 90c and at that temp it shuts down to prevent damage to the chip, the max 24/7 varies from chip to chip but AMD advised to stay under 65c for 24/7 usage
For short periods of time the chip can handle 70+ but that is only for benching or for short periods of time.
