I'm shooting for a stable 200 bclk. This is why I am bumping the vcore up. I started getting a bsod #124 in LinX and when I increased VTT it didn't help. Currently VTT is 1.31v. Any templates with a i7 970 floating around?
To find max bclk, you should be lower the cpu ratio to a speed you know the cpu can do. For instance, I know my cpu can do 4.0 @ 1.27 volts. If I wanted to test 200 bclk, I would lower ratio to 19 and test the bclk. If it fails, then it is most likely not because of cpu vcore.
The target voltage is the voltage that is most likely being set. I check my voltages with a multimeter and the value shown is very close to the real value.
1.15 sounds really low. There's no way to lower vcore on this board. The lowest is default.
