My System Specs

Default

From my understanding, you need alot of vcore among other things to get the 980 and 990X to breach 4.2Ghz or so, so unless you have exceptional cooling, I wouldn`t even attempt to do so as there is a very high risk of frying something, those chips can draw and awful lot of heat/power and require alot of cooling and just the right settings for it to happen.

I have a freind whom has his 980X sitting at 4.3Ghz, I do not recall the voltages or anything, all I know is he had to have a custom water loop to cool it well enough to run it above 4.1 as it just needed alot of voltage to bridge the 4.1-4.3 range.
