So it's at 0.85 Volts???

If it's stable that's a good thing at that kind of voltage. If you're getting BSOD's and errors left and right you need to bump up the Vcore.

As far as the voltage is concerned though, is CnQ on? Is there any sort of aggressive power saving settings that you have?

i am not sure what AMD calls it (vdroop?), but, Intel systems can automatically lower voltage when they are either idling or under low usage. This can be turned off for better stability when overclocking.

It's "Cool'n'Quiet", "SpeedStep" on Intel.  And it doesn't do anything to overclocking stability if you turn it off (it doesn't for me and I run 4Ghz on this x6), so keep it on.  Lower idle temps and noise.

If you don't have Blue screens of Death, or computer freezing, you are okay.

Usually I keep CnQ/EIST/Speedstep off. I noticed that with an office rig that I had at my workplace (AII X3 2.9 Ghz, 4 Gb RAM) CnQ was on and I would get major stuttering and random "freezes" until the CPU realized I needed computing power and kicked the multi back up.

Also I have the idea that if the multi/voltage goes up and down it's not good and you should probably try to keep constant voltage/power going through the device instead of getting "ripples" and fluctuations. Maybe it's true or maybe it's just something that I made up but at least it makes sense in my mind.
