I'm seeing people who are running 4.5 with 1.32volts. Is there a way to disable Load line calibration in my bios or get those max volts down at the same clock? Thanks
You should find loadline calibration where your overclocking option are in the bios. Maybe instead of disabling loadline, you should just decrease your vcore. Loadline helps prevent your vcore from dropping too low under load.
