settings look fine, however, the things that obviously stand out is the fact that you need
PLL overvoltage enabled for that multiplier and require almost 1.4v just for a 4.5ghz overclock. Normally I advise working up rather than down, however it may better to work down in this instance. If you find that you're stable then you can start reducing that vcore and retesting with prime blend, however I do still think that you should start small and work your way up. something like 4.2ghz with 1.3v, test with prime then increase multi until it shows sign of instability then increase the vcore by small increments untill you reach a 'limit'
By the way did you set the turbo power limits? Also you might want to increase the dram voltage a notch or two to get it at 1.5v because at the moment it's at 1.488v, that could be what is causing you problems, that 0.02 of a difference can make or break stability.
Also what options do you get under vdroop control?
Enable C1E and speedstep to ensure that the multi drops when it's at idel, it doesn't effect stability.Edited by munaim1 - 9/21/11 at 7:55pm
