As far as changing VDroop, there is a setting in the BIOS (I think its called Loadline Calibration, however I am used to Gigabyte boards so I may be wrong.) that will alter your vdroop. This is not really necessary, however, as vdroop is normal and you are perfectly able to overclock with a vdroop.
Frequency. Also do you happen to know any stability tests that I can run?
Do you guys think I should change my CPU ratio to 46 to see if it gets to 4.5ghz?
