Wow, it takes 1.47v to get that chip stable at 3.6? Or do you just have the LLC cranked up to High/Ultra? Little high it seems, but nice overclock.

LLC is set to auto, but my bios cpu.v is reading 1.375v which i increased to 1.4v to run the new set up and increased my NB.V to 1.15v for 4Ghz however since reading some of your posts in another thread i have altered my ram timings to 7-9-7-24 @ 160ns

160ns+ is only useful if you are experiencing boot failure due to FSB beyond what your RAM deems "viable". Take LLC off auto and find a good place for it. On my 990XAUD3, "Auto" was the equivalent of "Extreme" which was ridiculously overkill. Medium to high worked pretty well with OCing and keeping the heat down.

That board should be able to run a ref clock of 300 pretty easily.

EDIT: Also, lower your HT multiplier by one step.

I made the alterations you suggested, validated and ran stable at 4.004Ghz for an hour then bsod on me, so i made a few more tweaks but can't hold it for more than an hour, but i must be very close, so i am now running stable and validated at this 3.99Ghz with lower core volts, until i can figure out what needs the last bit of adjusting, LLC is now set to Medium.

But i can't get my ram to run at over 1200mhz @ X4 multi, at 5.33 runs at 1599Mhz but unstable.

Many thanks though for all your advice it has helped a lot and got me to 3.99Ghz stable, what was fsb does not seem to like running at 300 with a lower multi to get the same results, but i am probably missing something.

Try turning the LLC up a step or two, just keep it off of extreme haha. Is your RAM rated to do 1600? If not there's your problem. If it is, however, you could add a little CPU/NB voltage to try an stabilize it (vDIMM as well). Your HTT clock is almost 2300, lower this multiplier by 1. This clock degrades your entire system when >2200 on Thuban.

We may have a winner, 4.004Ghz running stability tests now, increased LLC to high and CPUNB.V to 1.175 and lowered HHT clock multi by 1 to 2002Mhz, ram now running at just under 1600.
