I guess i must lower my voltage?
Funny.. it go higher on load then on idle, is it my LLC?

Yes, LLC is helping you out. Unfortunately, OP doesn't have LLC. What clock speed are you running at that voltage?

NICE! Try for a higher clock speed with that same voltage. What are your temperatures like, and how long into Prime Blend?

I have just been increasing the voltage. In my BIOS I just increased the voltage incrementally by .025v untill it was stable at .225v. So at idle it show 1.47v and fluctuates back to 1.344v.

I'll try a higher voltage a little later tonight, an hour or so...

Prime 95 ran for about 20 minutes. Enough time for about a dozen or so tests!

Its always been my understanding that BD does not really benefit from NB overclock. Is there a reason your running 2400?

His Mobo doesn't have LLC. He has V. 1.0. Version 1.1 has LLC.

I don't think you need to go higher
I'm very stable now no error's what so ever and temp's are just reaching 44c with 100 load and i'm just using 1.368v but i also have LLC set to extreme.

north Bridge on BD doesn't help kinda heats up everthing. I would go back to 2200 on NB and set the mutli up to 23.5 or 24 I know you sould be able to get 4.6 on water im running 4.22 on air.
Remember The 8120 does not like to get above 61c underload. for a long time. If you have over clocked your CPU and its stable watch your temps. If you are running hot the cpu isn't going to last you more then a week or two. I burned up 1 8120 that was stable at 4.7 on air but its hard to get a good temp read on these CPU so i figured it was fine. 3 weeks later running 24/7 the cpu started to take dumps on me. So form reading this forum people have informed me to keep the temps below 61c at full load. Run prime 95 for 2 hours and get a probe to check your cpu for temps make sure to keep under 61c and push it as far has you can, But dont go over
