I think you are over shooting your voltage. Your voltage for your clocks is higher than any other IB CPU I have seen for your speeds. Try to get your voltage down to at least 1.2v for 4.5GHZ and you will see a huge drop in temps and stability.
I'm still working with her, but she really doesn't want to boot w/ anything less than 1.49 Vcore @ 4.6 so far. I'll drop the multi and see if she'll boot @ 1.2v. But it's starting to look like I might have a bum chip according to what you guys are reporting.
I've been playing w/ mem & running gpu burn in's all day. The Sammie's are stable @ 2000 Mhz, but I haven't touched the timings yet. The great news is my R7950 TF3 is nearly verified as completely stable (no down clocking at all) @ 1300/1500 core/mem. I'm just about to run a 1 hour test on Heaven to verify stability one last time. I guess no one can win the silicone lottery twice.

youre sure thats the minimum vcore you need to make 4.6ghz run ?
what do you need for 4.5ghz, vcore wise?
Yep, I'm certain. It froze on boot with anything less @ 4.6. I don't recall at 4.5, I'll get back to you after I make this Heaven run and try it again.

Wow. My cpu sucks then.

At this point, I'm not sure it will. I'm starting to think this 3570 is a bottom of the barrel binned chip.
