A bit reluctant to press that link, especially when your ocn name has 'bot' in it

Thanks bud, overclock, however, is looking damn good, especially those voltages!!! keep it up

I'll edit that.
- Regarding CPU current capability, are you sure that increasing it like hell augments stability? I often monitor the wattage in RealTemp, and it's always between ~89 and ~105w under full stress in Prime95 (custom 1344, 1792 or blend), so I thought giving it more would be useless?
- As for CPU Spread Spectrum, it is here to reduce interferences with wave propagation like cell phones, Radio... I don't have a GSM in my house, nor a radio so I don't care at all,I think disabling it indeed helps a little for stability. Why do you recommend enabling it? I mean what concrete technical help is it supposed to provide by leaving it enabled?
- Regarding PLL, I had set it to 1.65V before it crashes, that's why I increased it to 1.7. So do you think I should leave it to 1.7? Or maybe would it be better to increase it or set it to Auto for starters?
- As for VCCIO I didn't know about this, thanks a lot, nice piece of info indeed. I'll set it to Auto as you recommended.
CPU current capability is a mobo feature that eliminates any restrictions
when overclocking, sort of like the turbo limits that you see in asrock and MSI mobo's. It allows the total power current to be delivered to the cpu when/if
required. It's completely safe as your overclocking and this is one of those little safety features implemented in the mobo.
As you said, Spread Spectrum helps against interferences and such , and because it doesn't effect stability it shouldn't be disabled. I believe some have reported that it helps stabalise the voltage and prevent voltage fluctuations. Head over to the Asus P67 mobo thread and ask twocables, he was the one that bought it to my attention. C1E and Speedstep has already shown that it doesn't affect stability, with Sandybridge everything changed and that means that the safety featuers and things that use
to get disabled doesn't really make any adverse effect on overclocking or the stability.
One more things to add, when tweaking BCLK or if it reads 99.8 etc, it should be disabled asI have foudn that it brings better stability when your messing around with the bclk it also helps those that hshow a bus speed of 99.8 in windows.
PLL at 1.65v shouldn't make it crash, but work your way up from 1.5v, as not all chips are the same. I foudn my overclock to be stable at 1.7v, however further testing I was able to drop the PLL further to 1.55v and still maintain stability. I advise doing the same and ee where you get to. PLL voltage for me, as reduced the load temsp by a 3/4c, maybe ambient temsp helped aswell but im pretty sure it was the PLL voltage.
Hope that helps clear things up.

60c while folding is really good!!! Nothing to worry about there, you have headroom further if you want.
