I'll try that out once I get the CPU stable.

Well, I would rather not go over 1.5v if possible. I'm not sure how much more this motherboard and HSF can handle, and I would rather not fry anything. I bumped the CPU down to an even 4GHz with 1.496v and the bus is back to 200. The last torture test (@4.1GHz, 1.48v) took two and a half hours to fail, so I'm hoping this one will be final. I'll post the results tonight.
