See how you go with 4.9Ghz when you can, if you get a bluescreen increase your Vcore to 1.3V and try again, if it bluescreens again back the multiplier down to 48 leave Vcore at 1.3V and test with Realbench for an hour. Set memory on Realbench to 16GB if thats how much memory you have, basically set memory =to whats installed smile.gif

See how you go just keep in mind that games stress a CPU in a different way than XTU does so dont be too worried if you get a bluescreen hence why I suggested Realbench because it uses real world applications and stresses your GPU as well which can also be a factor smile.gif

Try Realbench first if it passes then try OCCT stress test for an hour, keep in mind that an unstable overclock can cause your windows install to corrupt itself, hence why we stress test first, patience smile.gif

You dont have to switch back to manual voltage for OCCT just be aware that OCCT is basically Prime 95 with a different interface so if you use adaptive voltage it will push your Vcore slightly higher than Realbench would. Personally I use adaptive voltage so I stress test the same way that I use my P.C. Also note you may need to change some the settings for OCCT as it has some built in safe guards regarding Vcore levels and temperatures, also note OCCT is probably the hardest stress test of all to pass as it hammers your overclock well beyond what you would experience in the real world. See my screen shot for OCCT to give you an idea of how hot OCCT gets, note my ambient was 27 degrees C with a custom water loop. Keep an eye on temps as always.
