And believe me, it may seem like your chip is going to hit high marks, but there is just no telling what it will do when you start adding voltage, it defiantly wont hit your 'hopes' of 4.5 but thats not to say its a bad chip, just poor expectations

Trust me, you'll never hit 4.5+ GHz. Don't even try for it.

Hello all. I am new to the forum and to pc building. I have always used a factory pc until recently. I built this computer with hopes to over-clocking it. I am semi familiar with over-clocking, but I am having issues with jumping the settings. Any help would be great. Thanks.
