You should be able to get to 4.5 with 1.25 voltages. something else is not set right.
Dunno where your data is from, would be interested in reading. ****EDIT****I accidentally stumbled on it. That's a selective quote, that was put up by ASUS before pll overvolt was added to bios
, which when added was good for on average 1-2x multi or more
. So, by my estimation, it makes em all good for 4.6+, most 4.7+ and half 4.8+ - which is more in line with what my reading would suggest, though that's not scientific by any means. /****end EDIT****
I never heard of one that couldn't do 4.5. STRONGLY suspect, but cannot prove, that anyone who can't go higher either doesn't know what they're doing in the bios (mostly due to not taking the time to do all the reading, ALL of the info on how to tweak is in this forum somewhere - just gotta keep looking until you find it) OR doesn't have the equipment (mobo, memory, cooling) to let them get there OR just refuses to add vcore, yet can't understand why they can't go faster.
I would bet that at least 80% of them CAN do 4.8, given the right equipment and an informed pair of hands.Edited by keto - 10/24/11 at 9:39pm
