For the ram speed is that what the bios says or CPU-Z says?
Sitting at 3.8GHz now NB is at 1966 Memory is at 749 on cpu-z. I did the lazy overclock and left everything auto still have to do a prime and make sure shes stable

Ok.
1) NB needs to be 2400+
2) HT need to be around stock speed (2000).
3) Ram keep around 800 on CPU-Z.
4) CPU voltage should between 1.4-1.5v for 4.0ghz.

Remember that an Asus Sabertooth is a beast. It is design more for extreme cooling then the CHV.

EDIT
I like DICE and Ln2 runs.
