How to increase oc to 4.5 but maintain a 1.4 v or lower

Hey guys, look at the spec of my machine as it is overclock'd at 4ghz, but wanna push it more, how do i bring the voltage down and increase the cpu, as i cant manually adjust my voltage. Stupid Msi board. I wanna get it stable at 4.5ghz and what is the highest a voltage acpu can run at, i see some guys that oc run voltages like 1.6 to 1.7. Is this safe? what is the most i can overclock my cpu too with the current system i have.


I love this Website
it is so addictive

very simply lower the target frequency on the ram, that way the memory controller works less and lower voltage is needed. From there a slight CPU clock can be attained on the same voltage. Try 1066MHz...

you can try that, so far you are within safe value ranges, very worst case scenario, you mess up and cant post, then you'll just have to reset CMOS.

1.40v is really quite high for that OC.. i can't imagine why your voltage is that high...

My friend runs 4 6970s and a 990x and hes at 1.42v with 2000MHz ram so... im not sure what missing here.

Just to be safe, go back over all your pre-set of auto set values and verify they are where they should be, uncore and all. Maybe an incorrect value is messing with the OC?

yeh that worries me too

Tell me, what are your stock settings across the board?

CPU freq?
vcore?
uncore?
vtt?
memory target?
if you tell me what you've got, or simple take a picture of your bios i can try and work it out with you.

Sometimes you have to be very careful with auto OC features because they can be limited to beneficiality and may not take best advantage of your components...
