Hey all, first post here. New to overclocking but I think i'm getting the basics. Running the aforementioned cpu on a gigabyte z97mx-gaming 5 board. Currently overclocked at 4.6 at 1.264v (stress testing now, so far so good). I'd like to squeeze out 4.7, or maybe even 4.8, while sticking underneath 1.3, 1.4v max. When I bump up to 4.7 on 1.264v, it blue screens. When I bump up to 1.27v, instant reboot. Am I at my limit or are there other options I should be looking at in my bios to try and squeeze out more power? My PSU is brand new and has been working flawlessly, and I have about 200w headroom left, so I'm not bogging my PSU out. Thanks in advance, looking forward to being an active member!
