anyone think those voltages are too high?
I don't know what's the recommended settings for fsb volts and nforce spp for that mobo, you'll have to read up or someone else can tell you. But I think you're vcore was too low personally. Try changing one setting at a time instead of all at once, to avoid confusing your troubleshooting. Always keep an eye on those temps when raising vcore, especially under load. I would use Intel's thermal analysis tool (TAT) if you want accurate cpu temp readings, or some people I know use Coretemp. Stability test overnight, rinse, bake at 350 for 2hrs, spread a nice thick layer of icing on it, and enjoy!!
Oh ya you're OK to go a bit higher on vdimm. I believe they warantee them up to 1.9v for corsair, and many people go higher than that too. I would have some air blowing across them at least if you go very high on vdimm. Check them to make sure the chips aren't getting excessively hot as well. I could deffinitely
see that ram walling here before your cpu or mobo, especially if you don't give them some more juice. Again, memtest is an easy and very good way to check your ram stability. Those other stress tests do test the ram some, but not like memtest does, it will tell you if there's any kind of failures with it
. Good luck
