Thanks for the analysis, I'll try both 40 and 50 and let you know how it went.

I also think you don't have enough Vcore for that frequency. But maybe you have good chip.
I would put CPU LLC to high with current capability to 170%
VCCSA LLC to regular and 140% Current Capability
(Also, don't forget to put the DRAM Current capability to at least 130% (140% to be sure)
Check Raja Guide for better overclocking. Its the best guide for our board, many usefull info in there.
Thanks, I'll check the guide and look into your suggestions.

Couple questions when you get time, and if you want to answer them.
Are you using bulkhead fittings for your tubing to the pedestal?Could you (or anyone who wants to respond) do a ballpark estimate of what an Aquero setup would cost me for 3 rad/2 pump/flowmeter/temp monitoring for my SM8? Just very ballparked, not sure I'm going that route but would love to if I can fit it in the budget.
But anyway a great build, and a pleasure to read.
EDIT: I picked up some more info on the Aquero. Nice system!
Welcome! I am using bulkhead fittings between case and ped. And yes Aquaero 5 is a real asset when tuning your system.

AIDA64 checks for stability with the full instruction set; but you should run the high temp cpu (less ram) Prime95 as well because it creates a larger CPU load (more vDroop). With the CPU current set at 120%, I'm actually surprised that your system doesn't shut off running at 1.4v.
Thanks, I'll look into those changes.
Saturday night update:
I replaced most of the 90s with 45s or nothing, I also redid the rad pump so it's closer to the res. Unfortunately it didn't seem to make any difference in flow; I could only measure the flow the blocks and it is still .9 gpm. I also implemented Electrocutor's suggestion to put a valve on one of the fill lines and that resulted in a bump to 1.1 gpm. Thanks for that suggestion!
I also tested removing pumps and each pump adds only 0.2 gpm to the flow except for the first one which provides 0.5 gpm.
I have leak tested the new fittings AND replaced the Mayhems ... I also managed to liven up our living room carpet with some pink color. My wife was not pleased.
Moving on... I have started final wiring. Motherboard is done, I need to sleeve the GPU wires, add the custom power wiring for the Aquaero and some other misc gear, and I need to finish the lighting. I hope to finish it all Sunday.
