FX 4100 max safe voltage?

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
What's a safe range in voltage for the FX 4100? I've got it right now at about 1.48125 and only stable @ 4.1GHz...which is not that great of an OC...is it unsafe to pass above 1.5V on this chip? I'm got a hyperplus 212 cooling the cpu.

Actually at 1.48125 I think you are above the safe 24-7 limit... hold on, dixson01974 who is an FX owner will be able to provide you with this answer (I believe it is 1.4125V or so) - I'll forward this to him.  You should be well beyond 4.1Ghz though even at this voltage.... what is your motherboard?

Thanks for the reply. I have an ASUS M5A97 EVO with the FX 4100. But if need be, I can use MSI 970A-G45. I use 2x2gb 1600mhz Kingston (lowered them to 1333mhz through BIOS).

I'm @ 4,3 with stock cooler and voltage. You are doing it wrong.

I run my FX-4100 at 1.475v-1.51v @ 4.6ghz, but I have CnQ enabled so its 0.9v most of the time.

1.5v for 4.1 is total crap though, try bumping the cpu-nb 0.0125v or so instead of just cranking up vcore way high.

Stay with your ASUS and avoid using that MSI board for overclocking as it is known for VRM failure incident (as with several other MSI boards: more info in my sig, "About VRMs & MOSFETs")

Chording to AMD the Max safe voltage on the AMD FX series is 1.4125V. But I'm running on 1.44v without a problem yet for about 2 months now. I would say for 24/7 using "DON'T GO OVER 1.45V."

bah....that's too much for 4.1..check your RAMs or something 338

^ that chip..was safe @ those volts....as it found a second home..the owner was not quite as nice as me..lol

Nice OCing. It is the same as mine FX 6100.

EDIT
Back to the OP question.
OCing the NB speed will help you hit higher speeds. At stock NB speed I can't post past 4.7ghz.
