Sounds too hot for me. Try lowering the core voltage a bit. Like see if it boots with +40 or 60mv instead of 130. This was a funny concept for me because my i7 860 wanted 1.34ghz or more for 3.8-4ghz stable, but the 930 likes way less. The memory working after 4 hours sounds like it's good.
Also, might try and get it stable with under 4ghz first. Then up it little bit by bit, when it goes unstable you then try different settings, "one at a time" to figure out the culpret instead of adding voltage to everything.
I'm at 3.89ghz right now, core only at 1.216v, when I add voltage to everything, I get errors early and more heat. Sometimes less voltage is ok, but you'll have to figure out which settings are going to work for you.
SO, I suggest try lowering your BLCK at few, maybe 183-187 and 21 multi, drop the voltage on the CPU a bit and see if it boots and likes lower voltage.
