Keep in my mind that you have to stay below 1.40v for fsb term with this 45nm Q9400. So you really have to lower that. And I am sure 1.30v-1.35v should be enough. Actually you should not even have to move fsb term volt above 1.20v for 3.0Ghz but I don't really now maybe it's something about your mobo makes you need all these volts. Your fsb should be at 1500 for 375x8 = 3000 and it just looks right. But keep in mind that if you have any setting like fsb term volt you should keep that under 1.4v.
Also your sb and nb volts look very high to me for 3.0Ghz. Try lowering these till you find the lowest settings that boots you into windows.
You may need to mess with your cpu gtl, and nb gtl settings too if you have these options in bios. If I were you I would set cpu gtl to x0.63 and nb gtl to x067 and try to lower other volts..And I don't really think that you have to mess with your ht voltage. I would just leave it at default for 3.0Ghz. Don't forget to disable c1e support and speedstep.
What is your vcore set to right now ?
