OCing a GPU is a different thing though, should have mentioned that. I don't do it since I'm no gamer but the guys report smoother and better gaming.

IT can vary a lot with each chip, but I think it should be in the 1.12-1.25 range.

Nothing harsh, just open up CPUz and see, use Intel Burn Test to get it goin

A 4.4 OC puts me at 1.28 Volts

Try all settings and run stress tests, monitor your voltage, use what is stable at the lowest.

What the best thing for you to do right now is figure out stock voltage period

Turn around put your LLC on med then move up a couple clocks and see where it goes then add +5 volts more and test just like everyone else is saying you don't need much but you need to figure stock voltage first

Once you figured it out move up a couple mhz at a time i would say this chip on auto already hits 3.8 so imagine that voltage +15 volts more you get what i am saying you move in 5's so move up the volts +10 or more once you cross 4.0 and test and then 4.2 wouldn't be to far off you need to just try it out we handed you enough material to get a grasp already

and remember change turbo ratio and cpu ratio
