Hey,

Does anybody know how to or if it is possible to disable the voltage limit on an ASUS M5A97 board? I'm aware of the risks.

I'm at 4.5 right now, 1.56V. It's been stable for the last half hour under prime95 with a max temp of 46C. I think it's achievable... If I can manage to get the voltage a little higher

i've only managed to get 1.56V and i have a 4+1 vrm, with the same 140W limit

if your dead set on 4.9, your best bet is to get an 8+2 board, if your budget allows for it
