I'm now at a point where I've decided that achieving a stable 4ghz isn't worth the temps I get while stress testing.

Since my cpu seems to be able to handle it a lot easier, I'm now aiming for 3.8ghz at the lowest volts possible. I think I'm gonna do a standard IBT run and ~3 hours of Prime95, lower VTT a bit, and repeat until I get errors. Then once I find the minimum stable VTT I'll start lowering the vcore using the same process. The reason I want to do it this way is because my VTT is probably unnecessarily high right now (1.2v)

I THINK I should be able to lower my VTT to 1.125...I determined that was the sweet spot for a baseclock of ~180, whereas I got a BSOD at the default 1.1v. So something around 1.125 or a little higher should end up working for me...I certainly don't think it needs to be at 1.2v for a 1ghz overclock
