I would imagine that with your 970 board trying to get 4.8 is going to be a pain..as your vrms are going to get hot..

Hmm you can try my settings for 1.45GHz i cant promise you will be stable but you can give it a shot.
1.425V with LLC set to 50% it topped out at 1.44V and was prime stable

I'm having some stability issues even at 4300Mhz. Skyrim is acting strangely taking longer than usual to load, and one time when I did a quick load of my quicksave it just crashed to desktop. Hopefully none of my components were damaged from using that OC Genie. Are there any diagnostic programs that can tell if components are damaged?

I'm not seeing a setting for LLC in my BIOS. Is there another name for it? I'll look again.

that sounds like a corrupted save try loading an older save skyrim is very touchy like that.

Pretty sure your board has much weaker voltage delivery system. I also think that particular MSI board is famous for catching on fire.

This is true, that particular MSI board has multiple reports of smouldering under OC conditions. You want to be careful and watch your values.

Is your Card running in the x16 slot? If so then there is negligible difference from running it at x16 2.0 vs 3.0. If you really are worried then take out your sound card that runs in the other PCI-e slot and see if there is a difference in performance.

I'm not seeing LLC or load line calibration anywhere in this BIOS.

Yeah, it's in the 16x slot, and the sound card uses a different smaller slot. I may just remove the sound card anyways since from what I hear they're not much better than onboard audio.
