I never went above 1.5V for NB, but it still died and afterwards the board killed 5800K from the last country cup, because I was stupid enough to try it.

Sweden Calathea says:

Same here, it died with nb 1.55 volt, vcore 1.96 during POST. Probably shouldn't try to boot that high vcore :D Anyway really fun competition.
