I have to enter the number for the vcore myself.
and yes, I am currently using manual voltage for prime95 testing.
You press "+" on your keyboard and that increases it by a notch.
You don't have to enter it manually.
As for the variances in how much you need - that's based on a chip by chip basis - so one can't say you'll need X voltage to solve X issue.

Ga-z77x-d3h rev1 f18g
Hyper 212 evo with twin sp120
16gb 1600mhz ram
I'm trying to oc to 4.5ghz, started at 1.45v and 1.7pll with llc set to extreme. Dropped it to 1.41v, but after I restart to lower vcore again, it freezes within the bios.
Any tips or suggestions?
Freezes WITHIN the bios - that's a bit odd.
Try reflashing the bios - and also try dropping that vcore down a little to 1.25v - and not starting from 1.45v, which is insanely high.
