The thing is, when you add negative offset, you are also lowering the idle voltage which is around 0.9V default and probably <0.8V with your negative offset. Play around, you cannot damage anything this way.
You may also try a higher o/c with your current offset and the vcore of 1.08V. 4.2GHz should still work.
I actually just read that article yesterday. Needless to say, it was very useful.
So when I had -.130v, it still spiked vCore to 1.096v.
When I have -.120v, it is stable around 1.088v, and still spikes to 1.096v, so I may just leave it at -.120v since I dislike the spikey-ness.
My idle voltage is around .840v, and it hasnt crashed yet. Is that high enough?
