followed your advice and set VCCIO to 1.1 then 1.2 and didn,t work so did 1.4 and 1.1 and doesn't crash within seconds of prime thx! Will be running it for 3-4 hrs now to see if stable.

2. If it crashes at 45x multi, increase the CPU voltage until it stops crashing. As long as temperatures are okay you have nothing to worry about in the 1.3x area of voltage.
3. CPU-z reads a smaller voltage than in the BIOS because what is known as V-Droop. If you have the CPU voltage running at 1.36 and it's reading 1.284, that's definitely not correct. That's way too much V-Droop.
Also, you do have your BCLK set to 100x, correct? So if you're going for 45x multi, it should equal 4.5ghz is what you're aiming for.
1. Yeah i was just seeing if it would not almost instantly give a BSOD.
2/3. increased to 1.4v in BIOS and shows 1.320v in CPU-Z
Lastly, BCLK is set to 100x but showing 99.8 but yeah i am amming for 4.5ghz
P.S. +Rep to both
