i think i did pretty well

the cpu is at 4.5ghz

(4550mhz) with 1.392 volts

Played battlefield 3 for about a hour and a half and hit a max of 56c

Thoughts?

It seems fine in a game for sure. Have you run any other stress tests?

I'd say a few hours at least, but I'd personally say it's fine if its overnight or during the day at work and fine when you wake up/get home.

I can try to get volts lower. but everytime i put in 1.3 it automaticly goes to 1.39 for some reason. is 1.39volts too much for this cpu?

Try and use offset voltage instead. What LLC are you using?

NOt a clue. Flat usually. 3 or 4 is usually good for low voltage.

Prime 95 been running 1 hour max temp 68. bear in mind its super hot today (40c) im sweating just sitting down. so normally the temps wouldnt go higher than 60c which i think is fine? isnt it? also everything is stable after 1 hour. ill run it over night just in case but so far so good

I could be wrong here but last I read max recommended temps for fx cpu's was still 55C. Might wanna check into that before you OC anymore.

I was reading just now since you said that. amd says 61C is max. after playing bf3 then batman arkham city total of like a 3 hour gaming sesh. i hit a max 58c i

i have 1.34-1.35 volts stable at 4.5.ghz now i could go down to 4.2-4.3ghz and maybie get a stable like 1.3 volts what you think?

Leave it there. Thats a good compromise of temp/voltage/clock speed.

The chip will go much higher before thermal shutdown so no worries.
