Last question .. On the System Voltages page in the BIOS do I need to set the GTLVREF lanes (4 of them) or can I leave them on auto?

Mine are on auto. If you need to your can increase them all +10 to help stabilize. When I was having trouble with my OC at 3.2ghz this was suggested to me but I ended up having to much vdroop and had to mod the board to get 3.6ghz at a safer voltage.

What is Vdroop? So you don't think ill be able to achieve stable at 3.2 with my settings? Also will an OC to 3.2 decrease the lifespan of parts in the PC?
