what i mean is i want to overclock to 4.8 or 4.9 ghz but i wanted to start out overclocking to 4.5ghz so i figured i should set my voltage to around 1.42 and starting bumping up in increments of 0.2 until i reach 4.4ghz and once im ready to go higher i just start bumping up in increments of 0.1 while testing stability with 6 hours of orthos. what do u guys think

What is your cpu and heating. 1.42 is really high for 4.5. you should be more around 1.32 for that clock speed.

We need more info
