I would find the highest speed to run at 1.35 V's or below. I know that you can get away with a decent amount of voltage, if it is kept cool. But 1.4 basically is very high. You could get more performance at 3400 ish uncore, and 4.1 ghz core speed. Where is your Vcore at with these settings?

VCore is 1.2625 or something. And I can't lower it at all without crashing on Windows login. All my settings are in the imgur album.

Drop the uncore SPEED to 3200-3400, and get that QPI down under 1.35V's. I have personally cooked an "X" series memory channel with excessive QPI/memory speed.

That vcore has tons of room. try to run 195 base clock, 1.3V;s Vcore. will be 4.116. that will likely give you the same performance you are chasing with that QPI speed

To be 100% honest, I didn't OC this myself, had a buddy help that was supposedly an expert. So the higher QPI speed increases performance? And I thought that Uncore had to be (2*Ram Speed)? That's why I put it there.

The 2x ram speed is only for Bloomfield Core i7 920-960. Westmere 32nm chips are able to go down to 1.5x ram speed. This also may give you some head room for the overclock on the core as well.

So looking at my settings in my Imgur, what should I change and try for my OC? Also, could the high VTT voltage be what's causing me to have high VRM temps at times?

Yes, the added strain on the voltage regulation will add heat for sure.

I would set the base clock to 195-200, adjust the uncore and ram speeds accordingly.
drop the uncore to 1.32 as a starting point
set the CPU core voltage to 1.3-1.325V's. to start, and see how that does.

What would you say for Uncore and RAM speeds? I have 1866 RAM, but I'm not opposed to running it at 1600 if that's better.

Where ever you feel comfortable to start with. Remember, if you isolate the components then you will no which one is unstable. Set the uncore to 3000 even. Then set the ram to 1600, with the same timings as 1866.

Start to find the max core clock. and lowest voltage for that speed

Will try tonight. I'll backup my current settings just in case. So I haven't touched my ICH/IOH voltages. Do those need to change as well?

Only if you are gonna run 2+ GPU's, or intend to run a 215+ base clock.
