Thank you, I appreciate that info!
Since I'm pretty new to this, I'm hesitant to start playing with voltage. My next question related to this are:
Do you test settings in afterburner, then lock them in with RBE modified bios, or you just run Afterburner 24/7? My concern is that one of the recommendations to prevent random lockups in BFBC2 is to turn off AB, which sets your clocks back to stock.
Second would be with my voltage hesitation, what would you recommend for max speeds at stock voltage on RAM and GPU? The answer is that it's probably dependent on the specific modules I have (binning, random luck, etc), but I'm sure there are some sure-fire speeds attainable at stock voltage?
I'm terrified of messing with voltage ever since upping my CPU voltage by like .2v when I was on an H50, and my temps instantly skyrocketed, hitting TJmax and downclocking my CPU. That makes me very uncomfortable...
