I guess it's a temperature issue of sorts, since im unstable on lower voltages and throwing voltages at it increases the temperature past its shut down point.
This being an overclocking website has nothing to do with what I am asking you. It's a blind approach on your end if you ask me.
It'll only take a couple of minutes to try what I said.
XFR is different from All Core Overclocking.
Take this for a start:
My 1700X does the following:
3.9 at 1.300V STABLE.
4.0 at 1.412V STABLE.
4.075 at 1.488V STABLE.
4.1 will always crash no matter what Voltage.
Check the temps. I have headroom.To put into perspective what I am saying, my chip will thermal shutdown at 1.62V TESTED, not guessed. I don't preach what I don't do.
Now, you might ask, is 1.60 still not enough for 4.1? Check the bold statement as well as my Frequency to Voltage reference.

I know. And I meant no offense in saying this:
These things don't react well with cooling quality.
Coolers can only help you so much on ambient.
slim XSPC 360mm vs thick 480mm is negligible on my system. I miss the old saying "if you can cool it, you can clock it"
