Yeah I live in the Caribbean, so... Temperature is pretty much always 30C here... Thanks for your answer. I guess trying 1.4v from the get go and then lowering it is not really the best of ideas xD
Depending on your cooling solution, it may be doable. Right now down here ambient temps get to 35-40C, with my room being a cool 30-33C . Case temps hover around 35-38C idle and 41-43C load. With a NH-D15 and two TY-143s at 1100-1200rpm (a tad worse for airflow than the stock fans) I manage 78C full Prime95 load on the cores (1700 @ 3.75Ghz with 1.325v). My 1700 is a bit of a hog, so it needs 1.375v just to hit 3.8GHz. At that point and with the fans at 1500-1600rpm core temps. hit 85C and VRM shoots up to 93C. I have honestly not tried going any higher since my CPU is pretty much at a wall after that.
Ouch. That is a hog. My 1700 turbos to 3.74ghz stock and has been running at 3.92ghz @ 1.356v with max temps of 69C and vrm temps of 62C with ambients of 25C. The Silver Arrow with its ty-143 fans @ 2500 rpm does the cooling in a modified case. Adding 5-8C ambient on top of that would cook it. When gaming it runs in the 54-56C range.
I hate to say it but with ambients that high big water is probably the best solution.
Hey guys, just wanted to share my overclock running an 1800x @ 3.99Ghz 1.356v on a Gigabyte Ultra Gaming X470 being cooled by a corsair H60 AIO Push/pull rear intake. Right now it's cool so Temps max out at ~65c but when I blasted the heat and tested I got a full load of ~74c which ain't bad for a cheap AIO cooler.

Reason: oops forgot cooler.
My motherboard is the C6H (ROG CROSSHAIR VI HERO) and I can not raise the clock above 3.9, if I do this and test in CB it restarts. This problem is occurring with the new bios Version 6903. And if someone has the same problem and increased clock shares this information with us
Yes, although it's not just in CPU-Z benchmark though. I got an increase of ~50 CB points in Cinebench R15 too which was interesting, same 4 GHz clockspeed and RAM settings, nothing else changed except for the update. Not sure what they did but hey ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ its free performance boost.
