I guess my H100i is just junk at cooling properly. I can't delid a 3930k I don't think, and I don't want to mess with that. I have horrible luck and would most certainly mess it up, that's why I don't do hardcore real water cooling either.
Anyway I guess until I can find a better water cooler, it's off to 4.2ghz for me. Strangely enough I can get volts around 1.25-1.26 and it works fine? But the second I go up to 4.4 everything is unacceptable to the system. I have to keep going higher and higher volts, got to 1.38 and gave up because not even that was stable.
No you can't delid a 3930k. I was just saying that there is ususally always a solution to a problem. For you it might be to buy a better water cooling set-up. Could you post some pics of your BIOS settings so we can see exactly what your settings are? Anyways, REP to you for not quitting and for going through the same struggles that I have gone through. Oh yea, VERY important to sleep. I know it might eat away at you at night, but TRUST me. Sleep is a huge part of success.
