maybe not strange then, got a decent chip at 1.375v

It is actually "Absolute Maximum" which means we would have to take into account "vcc overshoot" or "voltage spikes" that peak around .05v during idle/load load/idle transitions, so 1.55v max, -0.05v for spikes would mae it safe up to 1.50v bios or cpu-z, which ever is the higher.


But, to run 24/7 anywhere above 1.40 - 1.42 on these chips needs some pretty hefty cooling

lol, I was like 1.68?? I did some more experimenting and was able to find a nice lower vcore 1.55 but again it wanted more juice so for the time being I'm good with where I'm at. Maybe you can help point out some settings your running

Amen to that! XSPC RX240 and RX360 and 10 Aerocool Sharks in push/pull take care of that chore...
