I have tried various and run the stabilty test for hours and days but havent found the correct formula as yet.

Nothing without some VRM cooling really.

You could order some heatsinks for them as referenced in the article.

I probably wouldn't push the voltage at all until you do, but you can see where it goes with just multiplier overclocking wink.gif

That board isn't particularly amazing for delivering copious amounts of power.

Even an example would be gratefully appreciate until i fathom it out. Based on the settings below

Cpu Ratio defaults to 200

Turbo Core Disabled

PCIE Frequency is DDR3 1866mhz
