Read most of this thread but have skipped a few pages so if I repeat information sorry.

In the past, when overclocking, I've had RAM problems and didn't realize this was the cause till I lowered the RAM alot and all the sudden had stable clocks. Thus I could mess with the RAM afterwards.

Also, I have a feeling that that some of these walls I am hitting is due to NB and HT as supposed to cpu freq and voltage (but I'm not sure).

Lastly, In a few cases i noticed that I have had huge voltage spikes (or drops) and I not quite sure the cause of this.

Hmmm, do you happen to have the 8 pin ATX connector plugged in? The motherboard will come with a plug covering half of it so it will only look like a 4 pin plug. If you only have a 4 pin connector plugged into it, it will limit you to 150watts to your CPU, thus limiting you to about 4.4 Ghz

Sucks man. Mine hits 4.6 on an H60. My only limit is cooling.

I really wish they would include NB speed in the CPU-z validator submission.

My 8320 is also limited by cooling. I'm up to 4.7ghz now. I can only run IBT at night with the windows open to keep it in the low 60s! Lol.

Otherwise I get dangerously close to 70c.

Reflash BIOS (0906) and Load Optimal Defaults?

It's very strange that it would be a similar issue between two new motherboards, by two different manufacturers, maybe it is a DRAM issue. Did you run with only 1 stick to see if it was better?

When you install the motherboard, you have stand-offs? All the screws are installed and not super tight?
(I've seen someone crack their motherboard because they assembled it with a power drill and the screws would actually heat up under load and short it out)

I wonder if there is an issue with the saber rev2, it is weird that the 1006 bios would be pulled from the site, especially since that is the one that was released for PD support.
