I think that about covers it. Any recommendations to get something stable without the vcore being so high?

After setting CPU Power Response Control to Ultra Fast, I was able to lower PLL voltage to 1.61v without BSOD, and vCore temp dropped about 4 ~ 5'c, now at around 65 ~ 74'c max. Before it was hitting 81'c. I can't lower my vCore voltage anymore even by 0.05v it'd auto reboot after about an hour in P95. To get 4.7GHz stable on mine requires 1.4v and I have tried every combinations to no avail.
100'c is crazy!!!

Yea I know...even though 4.7GHz @ 1.4v barely raised my overal vCore temp by 1 ~ 2'c, I still wasn't comfortable with that much power into, so I backed down to 4.6GHz. Besides, I feel no difference at all lol.
