Dude that is pretty nice job!

I like to first minimum staiblity like run a benchmark that is CPU intensive like cinebench to get a feel for wether it will go anywhere, and then do AIDA64 the latest edition, but run it as long as you want, 1 hour for a quick check, or 12-24 hours for a 24./7 type OC. You can also try to rush method and test like an hour and add a few votlage notches to your vcore, but then you wont know if you are overvolting.

i'm would like a 4.5Ghz with the system i have but i'm not that comfortable with going for this, so i have settled for 4.3-4.2. I'm currently trying to get a 4.2 OC stable. It seems i have a power hungry chip:o
room temp - 20c
Core max temp during test 72c
VRin - 1.9
Vcore - 1.410
RING - 1.2
LLC - Extreme
DDR CH - Extreme
PWM Phase control - eXm Pref
I'm doing an intelburn test as a quick idea if it is stable, then when i pass a test i'll run AIDA64 to do a full test. but when i fail and intelburn test i'm bumping the Vcore by 0.01v at a time, is this the right thing to do? anyone have any suggestions to how i should go about getting this stable?
Damn dude that is a crapload of vcore!!!! I don't know why you need such high vcore, what is your cache ratio? You might want to try to lower it and see if you can back down on all the other voltages.

With Uncore x40 @ 1.15v have a BSOD after 10 hours in Prime95, but x39 its stable, so I want x40 the Uncore, and i will try @ 1.2v.....
No problems this voltage ??
Yea i think that is okay, unless it is starting to hurt your tempeartures.

well the thing is you want to use AVX if you want max stability no matter what the CPU core will provide extra voltage wether on manual or not,unless you have a board with a FIVR bypass(there are only a few) and in that case you still want to use adaptive and not bypass as the bypass voltage is much dirtier and will require more vcore for the same clocks as the FIVR.
