I think you should start benching again Bob.
lol... if you have the gear or you know of a good team in so-cal, im down... but just a warning, im rather young for how long ive been benching
remove your stick of PNY RAM and put the kingston thats in slot 2 in slot 1... that will majorly reduce the volts you need... also, on 775, the more sticks of RAM you have, the higher volts you need (i could never figure out why)... your other option would be to get another stick of RAM and put it in slot 4 wile swapping the PNY in slot 1 and the kingston in slot 2... try to keep RAM matched up in the slots and never
use half of a lane if you want to OC... this should reduce the volts you need by quite a bit because you souldnt realy need over 1.36 to hit 4GHz on a q9650... but be ware, they are still volt hungry CPUs
