yea.. you did, I noticed it after I wrote the post..lol.. sorry. but yea, bring the mem v up to 1.65v
reason I said lower multiplier and bring up blck is to get higher freq out of ur mem.
I have the same mem on a sabertooth x58 mixed with OCZ gold running over 1700mhz and a i7 920 (D0) that while finding its peak, all said and done got the ram at 1553mhz and the cpu to 4.18ghz. I see no reason you shouldn't beable to get a stable 4.2ghz out of ur rig. just takes time and a lot of crashes to get there.
ive since, because id like to keep my cpu, have it at a nice 3.6ghz @1.275v, mem at 1.65v @ 1773mhz and my qpi at 3913mhz. all stable.
