Not really an answer to my question, but thanks for the reply.
Still looking forward to see a responce from the ROG members.
Well we are all ROG members. You, Me and anyone else that joins this forum. I assume you meant Moderator.
As far as not answering your question(s), I believe I was very clear, concise, to the point and very blunt. I wasn't blunt to be rude, I was blunt because there is no good way to to describe what over clocking is and the possible negative outcomes in a clear unadulterated way without being blunt and still be honest with the one asking the question(s).
Just like a race car driver is willing to risk destroying his car (and more) to win a race, there are overclockers willing to run liquid nitrogen and risk their hardware to win a competition. Both sports can be fatal to your personal property!
The best defense against damage to your PC is knowledge, learn everything you can about OC'ing then practice don't jump right up to 4.9GHz start a little at a time and see the effects while running stress tests like Prime95 or IntelBurnTest.
If your CPU temps are too high improve your cooling or lower you CPU's voltage. TurboV EVO won't do this for you. With the exception of the mild OC's you get with TurboV EVOs level up stuff, your OC is all about what you do and set in bios or whatever OC utility you use.
Other than crashing or your CPU throttling down because YOU let it get to hot, YOU are your only fail-safe.
If you want to know what TurboV's limits are slide the sliders all the way to the right just DON'T click apply, but the quick answer is it goes high enough to destroy things.
You bought a ROG motherboard. They are great motherboads but, like many race cars it's not just made to preform great and go as fast as you want. It's made to go faster than you want, so you have to be the limiting factor.
If you just want to be safe, just run everything within manufacturers specs and you will still have a great MB. Albeit a little overkill. But if your a little more adventurous like me, have fun overclocking!
P.S. I hope you don't find any of what I wrote rude or condescending, it's not meant to be. After all none of us knew anything until we did! Good luck! :cool:
This question has been answered, though i'm still qurious if the program looks at the temperatures. (but maybe thats what you ment by "handbrake")
