Yes I have. To see what would happen. I left the Voltage on Auto and proceeded to try the system @4.2,4.3,4.4,and 4.5Ghz. Each time the Voltage would not go over 1.360 ever. The board couldn't stabilize for 4.5, 4.4, or 4.3. It seemed stable at 4.2 however. What's going on here? Why can't I increase my CPU voltages to make things stable (or why at least doesn't auto do it to compensate for the higher ratios)?
Edit: If all I can get is a steady 4.2 on this, there is no point. It goes up to that anyway with Turbo Core when it needs to anyway. If that's the case I'm better off with the power-saving features on to prolong life and decrease heat. And for an apparently 'bad' board I just wanted to show that it's supposed to be good. The #8 fastest OC for FX8350s in the last 12 months was on this board at 8370.9 Mhz, according to CPU-Z
