Need to know what are the maximum "safe" voltages I can set. So far, highest I have been able to hit and be stable is 3.5. I am attempting to hit 3.8-4.0 GHz. If someone can tell me the max safe voltages it would be much appreciated

CPU clock ratio: x14.5
CPU NB Freq. : x10
CPU Freq. : 263

Mem. Clock : x3.33 (877Mhz)

NB Volt Control: Normal
SB Volt Control: Normal
CPU NB VID Control: +0.100V (1.2750 V)
CPU Voltage Control: +0.150V (1.5750 V)
-Normal CPU Vcore 1.4250V-

With this setup, the machine makes into into Windows, I get the password in, I see a glimpse of the desktop, and then BSOD

OK, after tweaking a bit more (see below), I managed to get into Windows, and do some stuff. Tried running the WPrime 32M benchmark, got 8 seconds in, and then BSOD, so I must be getting closer.

Changelog:
CPU Freq: 260
NB Volt Control: +0.1 V (1.200 V)
SB Volt Control: +0.1 V (1.300 V)
CPU NB VID Control: +0.200 V (1.3750 V)
CPU Voltage Control: +0.200 V (1.6250 V)

It's all about the temps. You can push the voltages as high as you want, but eventually you will cook you CPU and other hardware. You have yet to post any temps and I fear what that could mean.

Here's all of the temperature information I have:
CPU_Core#0: 33C (low) 37C (high)
CPU_Core#1: 33C (low) 37C (high)

GPU: Holding at 48C

Anything else you need specifically?

Post a Screen Shot of HWMonitor. I like to see all the sensor info (Everest sensor page is good as well for comparison)

Will a screen-shot from SIW work? It's what im running right now and they appear to be the same thing

Now post a SS of the sensors while under stress. (Prime95, OCCT, IntelBurnTest, Everest to name just a few).

Will be using WPrime. Just a few moments and I should have that for you

Temps look good... I highly suggest a 20 pass IntelBurnTest to get a real good feel for stability and then an overnight of OCCT large data set for final stability.

Is ~3.7 GHz the highest I am going to be able to hit?
