Leave the ones at the bottome to what ever was default, if you have forgotton clear CMOS and check.

Work your way down from 1.4v, if that doesn't work try working your way down from 1.43v

101? MOAR VCORE!!!! lol

Actually, take LLC to "Extreme" and test with that first. It helps some, it hurts others with their overclocks ...

Extreme LLC causes voltage spikes under load, which is not recommend. Your fine using Ultra, continue adding more vcore, try 1.43v

EDIT: How many passes did LinX do before bsoding?

3 LinX before bsoding, just upped vcore to 1.42V and passed 5. Max Temp was 90 though on LinX. Gonna run P95 blend test.

Under prime blend max temps will probably be around 80c which is okay, and for everday usage won't probably even reach 75c. Your doing fine, keep it up

Try to keep prime blend below 80c.

Do you use spread spectrum?

Everything is competely different with sandybridge, Spread spectrum can actually help with stability, iirc it was turrican and twocables who said that it helps reduce voltage fluctuation. I tested it and it does indeed help mine.
