I was told that going above 1.375V for the 990X for 24/7 is NOT a good idea (?).
Actually I do run it daily on Auto and it is just fine, auto usually sets me around 1.38-1.4v depending on load, so it is working for me w/o issue. But Overclocking you have to give it that juice, thus the reason for the water cooling - heat kills it faster than anything and the w/c keeps that in check so the voltages shouldn't really be an issue. Now anything past 1.45v would be something that I would not run 24/7. I think 1.4v is the max you can take these but I could be wrong. I have not needed to go that far yet, but may if I decide to push to the 5.2Ghz area. I was able to boot to Windows and do a validation, etc at 5.1Ghz and 1.45v, but BSOD's pretty quickly. I pushed it to 1.6v and was much more stable, no heat issues, but still could not keep it able to do Prime95 on 12 threads more than 2 minutes before it BSOD'd - so I know its possible to get that high with this chip, I just need to find the other adjustments to go with those spees to make it stable so I can bench it.

I have a 990x and Gigabyte Sniper Board, G.Skill 2000 ram that runs at 8-8-8-24, as well as Coolermaster V8 (air).

Can I get to 4.6 on the cpu?

Recommmended settings and voltages that are stable and safe?

THANKS in advance.

Ok, sorry about this in advance, but why in the world would you want to run a cpu (6 core 12 threads), at 5GHz or above 24/7???

Are you trying to launch the space shuttle???
I mean, for benching, hell ya, but for a 24/7 stable overclock??? Thats insane!
& best of luck to ya, in a year or so, when your looking for a replacement cpu!

Probably because they can.
