So it might be that the power limits are stopping your voltage from going any higher, which makes you think it needs more voltage (because it isn't getting any), and you raise it up when in-fact it's not going up at all.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS.
The latest is 1.5 and can be downloaded here (this is a Windows file, run the EXE and reboot when it says to).

After that, I'm not sure how to "unlock" the power limits besides...

So I took all your guys world of wisdom and applied it. Volts are still a little high but its definitely better. Heres what I got:

45
Turbo Volt Boost: +.023v
Max Vcore: 1.368v

46
Turbo Volt Boost: +.102v
Max Vcore: 1.464

Then something weird happened. While trying to get 4.7mhz stable I noticed that if I added anything beyond .180v to the turbo boost it had no effect. To test this I gave it +.300 boost and then put it under load. The vcore stayed the same as it was when it had +.180 (1.48v). So I set the turbo boost at +.176 and then started to add some volts to the offset. Right now I have it running prime at 4.7mhz with +.176v turbo boost, +.040v offset and it seems to be pretty stable its only been running about 15 minutes though. The vcore is slightly above 1.5v.

yeah - I've noticed this also. back down turbo for 47, and add the mV to OFFSET instead. I posted about this observation some time back. it seems that after some point, turbo just can't feed the cpu. I still think you are OVing that chip. 47 should not be above 1.4 or so. do you have a digital multimeter?

Well when using turbo offset your limited to around 1.5. No amount of additional voltage set to turbo offset will go over it. User "ucode" goes over it in this thread,

post #5894 of 9565
well looks like hes having the same issue i have
in which case yes... we are overvolting. but not much else to do when you cant get the damn thing stable

Do you read through posts or just skim through them. Asus doesn't even have additional turbo voltage hence the thread I linked discussing it vs Asrock.

I ended up not being able to get 47 stable under 1.52v. 46 took a little more than +.102v to get stable.
I do have a multimeter. Where would I have to make the connections to get a reading?

yeah im @ .125v to Turbo for 46 stable and no WHEA errors, anything lower i get WHEAs
post #5900 of 9565
I sold my "golden" chip and just got a replacement which is not quite as good but I did get it to 4.6GHz @ 1.20v. Over the weekend I'll see how well it scales
