1. Approximately 50% of CPUs can go up to 4.4~4.5 GHz
2. Approximately 40% of CPUs can go up to 4.6~4.7 GHz
3. Approximately 10% of CPUs can go up to 4.8~5 GHz (50+ multipliers are about 2% of this group)

You should be able to get to 4.5 with 1.25 voltages. something else is not set right.

LLC, once you enable you will have a setting light up, that has a range of 1-10.

At level 1, your voltage will DROP under load, below your vcore. You don't want this.

At either level 5 or level 6, your vcore setting and load reading should be very close to each other.

At levels 7-10, your voltage will be HIGHER under load, than what you set in the bios or see as a reading at idle.

You probably want level 6.

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.

All chips are different. I'd say 1.25 would be a really decent vcore for 4.5, but it's definitely not unheard of to need more than that. He could try putting the PLL at 1.7, but if he's stable at 1.6 that's fine too.

If a worker stopped in P95 and there was no BSOD I'd be inclined to think he needs a .005 bump in vcore.

1.25v @ 4.5 would be the minority, a small minority. 1.3-1.35 is midrange, with outliers in both directions.

I don't think I can do this. Looked hard.

IS cpu-z normally accurate, because my voltage does actually go DOWN when I start the test. I noticed this, before, but I didn't know if it was something screwy with the monitoring applications.

For example: I have 1.375Vcore set in BIOS and CPU-Z shows 1.368 idle and 1.344 when I start the test. It does stay steady.

Yup, if you want it to stay at 1.368 when you start the test you have to raise the LLC level. Like I said, probably lvl 6. At the spot where you set LLC to 'Enable', it's either right above or below that in bios.

Here is an example of what my BIOS looks like. Image from Legitreviews:

Bump up vcore, set pll to 1.7v and vtt to 1.12v, retest. Dont touch system agent or pch.
