    Safe SOC voltage?

    To get my 1920x to 4ghz and my memory to 3200mhz I have to have my Soc volts set to 1.2 in the bios and where it’s showing manual mode it says it’s at 1.242v is this safe? When in windows HWiNFO64 says it’s @1.194v and AIDA64 says 1.243v which one should I believe and is it safe?

    1.2 is the max I would say....there are rumours of death/degrading over 1.25 so you don't want to be anywhere near for 24/7 stuff.

    Not sure about SOC readings...have you played with SOC LLC?

    1.2 set in BIOS I don't know why it would be at 1.243?

    Auto is good...if you set it to 3 it will send SOC even higher...

    Hmm that is a bit outside of my comfort zone for sure

    68C is the AMD recommended max temp and 1.425v the max vcore

    I have read you can disregard the 68c and these chips are fine up until 80c and then they thermal throttle*

    Well we are all free to make those kinds of decisions just putting up the official AMD guidelines.

    The CPU will throttle for other reasons apart from temp of course...

    well I managed to get some G.SKILL TridentZ 3200mhz c14 for a great price and now have my vcore down to 1.4v idle 1.36v load and SOC down to 1.1v running at 4ghz nice and stable, so it looks like my Corsair vengeance LPX was holding my chip back*
