    Hi , it is stable at 2.9gig at 1.63 volts and under load temp is around 39 - 41 degrees if i lower it to 1,6 volts even it fails under prime so i will try to keep it the same for a bit but do you think that is my limit , only i read people at 1.7 volts , or is that a bit too much ??

    1.61's more than I would put through it on air, especially if you're going to use it like that regularly, I'd keep it at 1.55 max personally.
