Your VTT is probably a bit to high and also the PLL voltage I would try at stock 1.8v

Ok, will do, thanks.
What do you recommend I should have the VTT at?
Also, my system seems to need higher voltages than I would have liked...

I would start with the VTT at 1.3 and go from there. All chips are different man, my i7 930 needs 1.3v for 4.2 and 1.4v for 4.5 where as others need a lot more or less or can't do 4.5. It's all a luck game.

Yeah, my i7 needs a hell of a lot of voltage compared to some other i7's. The minimum voltage my i7 930 runs at is 1.3875v when it is 4GHz+

Awesome, I have it running at fully stable 3.8GHz at only 1.28v !!!
With full load temps of around 70 degrees Celsius during Prime torture test.
Also, I think the 1.335v VTT helped too.
Thanks

Are you going to be gaming or using your PC for encoding/editing? If your just gaming I would turn off HT and read an article somewhere here on the site that explains HT and gaming. With HT off you can be a little more conservative with your voltages and especially getting lower temps.
