But at the same time, I feel sorta better that I paid less and got the same performance but this is seriously going to IRK THE HECK OUT OF ME. What on earth could I be doing wrong?

Well, I'll see what I can do to help, since two processors capped at 4.6Ghz would be unusual.

Could you:
- Post Screenshots of Your BIOS Settings (Voltages/Frequency Section, LLC Page, Power Savings Page)
- Run OCCT, when the test fails it will give you a bunch of graphs. Please post those graphs.
(There will be multiple graphs per core, so you only have to post one of each of those, otherwise there'll be like 32 graphs)

Please use the [ Spoiler ] Tag so the pictures wont take an entire page.

Just an update from last night, I have been able to drop the NB manual voltage down from 1.45V to 1.306V without changing any of my other overclock settings.

Oh good, that's more reasonable. Is this at the stock 2200Mhz CPU/NB speed, or are you overclocking the CPU/NB?

I have started overclocking my FSB more, instead of just my multi.
Multi is at x18
FSB is at 250
CPU/NB speed is at 2500Mhz
HT speed is at 2500Mhz
RAM is at 1666Mhz

I'm getting the exact same overclock as I did using just the multi. I just felt like trying my hand at the fine tuning and tweaking, rather than just the multi alone.

Heres my latest CPU-z Validation

Very nice. Vcore looks really good. Fully stable?

Yes. fully stable. Ran IBT on a 2 hour test last night and it was stable.
I plan to reapply thermal paste either tomorrow at school or when my new paste comes in the mail later this week.It's ceramic based, and I've heard different things about ceramic paste, but I'm going to try it for myself.

Are there any major advantages/disadvantages to changing the Nb/HT link speeds higher than stock?

Is it best to leave them as close to stock as possible?

How long is it considered average for OCCT to run before a failure? I dont like using OCCT cause it doesnt tell you what the error was that it detected. And IBT can run my system for hours, while OCCT usually stops after a few minutes.

Increasing the HT only benefits Crossfire/SLI set ups.

Increasing the CPU/NB speeds hasn't shown any benefit outside the margin of error, so it's recommended to run it at or below stock.

OCCT will usually show a stability issue in under an hour. By examining the graphs, it'll usually give you an idea of where the issue lies.
- Temps too high.
- Voltage fluctuating too much
- System Throttle
- etc

About the NB/HT Link speeds, great, ill set those back down to stock since there isnt any major benefit.
With OCCT, I ran it a few minutes ago and the graphs all seemed normal to me, but maybe there is something it's showing me that im not seeing right away. I didnt see any fluctuations that seemed out of order.
