I have been running SOC 1.25v to get a stable 3.9Ghz w/ 3200Mhz @ 14-14-14-34-1T Timings. What is the safe upper bound on SOC? Gigabyte "claims" that it's safe to set SOC up to 1.35v with air/liquid but every other source claims that you're crazy to go above 1.2v.
My issue is that I am *really close* to getting 4GHz w/ 3600 16-16-16-36-1T but I don't know where I am going wrong. Previously I ran this a single time, but it was very unstable.
This is with the Gaming K7.
I've amended the post, as was going on older information. It's been brought to my attention that anything above 1.2v can be potentially lethal. So your sources are right. It's recommended you do not exceed this voltage.
