Start low and move up slow. It will get more finicky as you start passing 4.2 GHz, meaning you'll start having to REALLY change your vcore and settings to get stable. Here's my 24/7 that i work and move up from:
My settings are:
BCLK: 100.1 Mhz
CPU PLL voltage: 1.791
all other voltages: auto
additional turbo voltage: +.008
spread spectrum: disabled
all the C states still enabled
pll overvoltage disabled
load line calibration: level 1
For RAM, if its above 1600mhz, use XMP profile
examples of things i tested separately: (so you see what i mean when i say learn for yourself and don't copy others' settings, which is why i'm only showing you my lower 24/7 OC)
load line only stable at level 1 for me
additional turbo allows the fixed to move up, .004 wasn't enough.
c states disabled caused me to fail to boot a lot, dont know why, doesnt seem to matter if i leave on.
bclk i manuel'd to 100.1 cause it would fall below if i didnt.
lowering pll was more stable for me (it supposedly helps stabilize clocks below 4.5 and allows u to use lower vcore at these lower clocks.
That's all good, but if you want to save power at idle without bugs, disable all the C states and leave speedstep enabled, assuming it's stable, it won't cause problems, just clocking down on idle... you don't really need 4+GHz for web browsing and flash games
