I've had it at 4.6 GHz and got a couple of BSODs, both of them while rendering. So I dialled it back to 4.5 GHz and moved the voltage up to 1.3 volts.
Out of interest why did you raise the voltage? In the past my old machine got a tad hot on long renders on hot days. I just dialled the clock rate down and lowered the voltage slightly. The heat/voltage relationship is square law so a small change can make a significant difference. This knocked the max temp down by about 15deg.
My ASUS board allowed me to save templates eg 'standard ' or 'long renders' which could be changed without rebooting. Current machine has adequate cooling. One learns by mistakes.
