MSI 870A G54 motherboard
AMD Phenom II 945 @ 3.5GHz vcore 1.42

stable at 3.5 at 3.55 almost BSOD in 3Dmark vantage but i killed the bench before it BSOD, and its run ok on firefox since then, havent restarted it yet.

is it safe to push my vcore higher? also should i be adjusting any other voltages?

downloaded OCCT and wouldnt run for 3 seconds before it quit. lowered clocks to 3.45ghz, raised vcore to 1.45 after doing more research on the chip. only stable in OCCT for about 4 minutes. runs Vantage fine.

You can safely run up to 1.5V. Have you dropped the memory multiplier?

i always keep the memory mult so it will run at DDR3 1600 or lower, which is what the ram is specd at. right now im at 3.2ghz with 1426 at 8-8-8-24-1T about to try to run OCCT on linpack

read somewhere to try to run MHz at 2x FSB so i set it 1:2 and its been running very stable with auto timings, which so far have been lowest settings in bios, or very close. and very very fast :D 

currently at desktop stable fresh boot at 3.5ghz, vcore 1.42 nb 1.24 (turned red so i stopped but seen OC Genie auto overclock turn it higher so not worried) ram is going at 468 mhz 6-6-6-15-20-1T Dual Ganged. NB freq is 2.34 GHz. starting OCCT on linpack now.
