I was able to push it at 4.7Ghz at 1.57volts but the thermal margin under prime was ~9"C and the heat coming from the top fans of my case was noticeable!
Eek, I cringe at the single digit margins...must be the wussy in me! 4.7 at 1.57...that 1.57 scares me, but good to see some non-review 4.5ghz+. Not sure how high I can bump mine up to be frank--until I can get really on-point monitoring going on of temperatures, although my concerns with this being an mATX board haven't really materialized...it seems pretty well made.
My thermal margin never drops below 60 on my "always on" configuration, which is 4.3ghz @ 1.38v and 2400mhz @ 1.67(1.65)v... probably since I have 4 140mm fans and an H60 in push/pull with two SP120's on this APU...haha...or I'm just misinformed or getting the wrong read-outs.

Found it and read it, really great thread. I'm still trying to parse through specific posts to find out how they went about enabling it, what port was used, etc.--but definitely reassuring to have read it. Only wish it wasn't 2x the length of this thread...
Thanks for the heads up!
