Windows 7: Would a 1.44 CPU VCORE be too much?

Would a 1.44 CPU VCORE be too much?

I've been attempted to keep a stable A10-5800K 4.4GHZ overclock for the last couple of days.
While I am able to keep the system stable at 4.4 and 1.43750 voltage even in OCCT for 12 hours, randomly I will get BSODS when running games or CPU intensive applications.

My temps are fine, borderline 65 when Running this overclock on OCCT, but the most I've raised the voltage in any chip has been my current voltage.
I read online that 1.44 Volts is wht keeps the A10 5800k Stable at 4.4GHZ, but I am just a little weary about bumping up the voltage.

My cooler seems to be doing fine for air cooling, it is a CM N520.

Any information would be appreciated.

Most AMD chips can take some high voltage but if your temps are almost at the max i would look into other things on the MB to tweek and keep the voltage steady like LLC that ussually keeps the current strong with little to no v-drop because most of the time the V-drop is the reason you need to add more voltage

But there could be some settings you havn't fiddle with that would make it more stable and lessin the heat being produced

This is where I get a little confused. What is exactly LLC? I've seen common talk about the term, but I am unfamiliar with it, and I am not able to locate it in my BIOS.
It's not the first time I've performed an Overclock, but my Current F2A85X-UP4 motherboard doesn't seem to have this option, at least in an obvious place for me to find.

And it is supposed to be an overclocking motherboard from the reviews and information I was able to gather from it.

LLC Load Line Calibration

Pretty much keeps voltages steady with no dips like you would see if it didn't support it

Most of the time when you overclock you have to suppliment more voltages from the drops it gives you when running games or benches if you open HWmonitor the voltages you set in bios are different then what is being read

That would be an offset do the LLC takes the offset away so it will b e the correct voltage and keep it steady and there will be no more voltage drops this is a large part of the OC process

So basically, to reach the real stable voltage, Say 1.4750, the gross voltage in the bios could be 1.49 so the real voltage being applied to the chip was indeed 1.47?

Yes that is right im not to sure why it drops but that is ussually the result

Thank you Solar.
Do you believe overclocking my ram might assist in OC stability as well? It's at 1333MHZ right now.

if that is you rated ram speed it probably won't help much and will make it worse if it isn't overclockable ram

But if your ram is underclocked and is actually 1600 i would adjust it to that speed and go from there

you are running AMD so with that you should be able to set the ram a tad higher and start going FSB but only go 2 at a time if that is to much go with 1 incriment on FSB and run benches to see if it holds up

Yeah, I just read that an AMD engineer recommends 1.47 volts to be supplies to the A10 to achieve maximum overclocking, so I will compare mobo settings with the actual voltage being delivered in OCCT, and set it accordingly to present a real voltage of 1.47

There is also an LLC option in my BIOS which I was just able to confirm, however I don't understand it's functionality, It has 3 presets for auto, medium, and high.
Hm.. time to read the manual.

I have like 4 of those mine is set on high I also have an extreme but that is a whole other animal

I must mention to you when you use LLC there is no need to adjust OCCT because the LLC will fix the voltage drop if you put it on med or high it should lift the voltage to the correct area
