I have a R2 and 3rd party SATA disabled. For my drives I have a OCZ Agility 3 for boot and 3x 1 TB drives in RAID 5. It takes me ~1 minute from power on to desktop.
4.2 Ghz on a Phenom II is already pretty much at the limit for most chips. You can attempt to start overclocking the CPU-NB and raising the CPU-NB voltage. Both of those things can help stabilize a high CPU overclock (sometimes).
AFAIK increasing the CPU-NB speed on bulldozer/piledriver does not have nearly as much of a boost in performance as it did with the Phenom II's. Whoever said that raising your CPU-NB speed doesnt raise CPU temps is also wrong, getting it stable when overclocking will certainly require extra voltage and will increase your temperatures quite a bit since you are raising voltage to the memory controller and L3 cache.
Because the CPU PCIe links that AM3+ CPU's have cannot supply the bandwidth of even a single PCIe 3.0 x16 slot. True PCIe 3.0 on AMD platforms will require a new socket and chipset.
Probably because the TDP of all AM3+ CPU's are 95w and above.
As others have said, your current motherboard is way too weak. You need a new one that can properly support that CPU.
I already posted this in another thread here, but I wrote a how to on how to block your ISP's cache server (hopefully). http://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/1978yt/are_your_youtube_videos_loading_slower_than_your/ This brought my download speeds on youtube from 500 kbit/sec to 2800-3200 kbit/sec.
I just wrote this huge wall of text and posted it on reddit. Good luck. http://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/1978yt/are_your_youtube_videos_loading_slower_than_your/
No, its measuring which power state your CPU is in. If you want to measure actual power consumption you need to but a hardware device like a Kill-A-Watt.
You need to either raise or lower your load line calibration settings (CPU LLC in BIOS).
