Oh yea you are right however I do believe the XFX 480 (normal) edition will push past 1400MHz quite easily on a stable basis at a good overvoltage. My everyday OC is 1450MHz core, 2150MHz memory @ 24mV and 50% power limit

Only 24mv? Wow

Sorry I mean +42mV on MSI afterburner. I know its stays below 1.25V

Still, that doesn't seem like much increase for such a high clock. Guess Polaris is all about that power limit.

Yep. As long as the temp are low enough (below 80) then the 480 is happy with the higher power limit

Partner card on water, only 1480?

AMD needs to get Vega out the door.

Well this thread has certainly got me interested and been an eye opener. Call it paranoya or whatever, but since I've never overclocked in my life, despite always have K seriers CPUs (2600K, 4790K, 5820K and now 7700K), I never really thought of this.

Maybe it has just been me and me being so uneducated on this subject, but whenever I've looked at OC guides on Youtube etc, I've never heard them mentioning this to be honest?

TBH many of them are just repeating what they saw or heard without knowing the deeper stuff. Many on the other side overclock just for numbers, and post stuff just so they can have one more video. You would be surprised how many of the reviewers on YT haven't got a clue about advanced stuff, and just repeat what product marketing team tells them. Internet is overflowed with them. When you overclock because you need every single drop of performance (mainly production work), and you actually understand how overclock works, you run benchmarks.

Right... Hence when someone asks for OC help, tips etc, everyone just seems to be answering with this "Look at tutorials on Youtube". Yeah, well your post just explained why I came here (to a specific place) and asked for help, rather than watching the videos.
And rather ask you, the ones that know this stuff from the inside and out, like a walk in the park, and could maybe point me in the right direction of an Youtuber that knows this stuff, explains it better than most and actually can tell me what not to do etc.

This is why I've never really felt comfortable taking that next step, since I have no idea what I'm doing. I watched Linus AMD build from what was it? 2009, 2010? Like 50 times over and over again, and that is what taught me how to build my first computer in high school, which was back in 2012, which my then school paid for. And it wasn't something cheap, it was then basically the highest end on the market at the time (i7 2600K, 16GB Corsair Vengeance, ASUS Sabertooth P67 motherboard, Sapphire Radeon HD69560 GPU etc).

But building a computer isn't as technical as overclocking. As building your first PC is mostly the very first step you take into the world of PCs. The step into overclocking for most people, comes after that. And I still today, 5 years later, still not comfortable overclocking. Yet, I would really like to try and get my 7700K to 5GHz. Not any higher, just 5GHz would be just fine of a milestone for me (IF my CPU has able to do that).
Just having to taken that next step and achieved my first overclock, which may not have been a big one. But still, a next step for me.

As the saying goes "A small step for manking, but a big step for a man"

Chrazey - like the actual electronics and exactly how computers actually work overclocking is sort of the same. Any one can shove up a multi and volts. And usually that's all you need to do because Intel made it that way. However true knowledge of overclocking is incredibly deep and really should not be attempted unless you know what you are doing, and what everything you are touching does.

Otherwise you pull a Jayz and blow up your AMD CPU /actual roll eyes.

It's not something easy to explain because most of it whooshes over people's heads. It's like trying to explain rocket science to somebody who has no interest in science.

Hence it's easier to go to YouTube and up your multi and volts lol.
