It gets into windows for a bit but then after maybe 5 min of use (not prime95, just sitting on the desktop) it will BSOD. I'll get some temps for you soon. I've been running so much prime on this thing that I am still waiting for it's idle temp to settle back down.
Thanks for the wishes.
LOL, yup up to 3.6 is easy, most will do it on stock Vcore, mine will go 3.8 on stock, and boot, but not stable had a BSOD @24.5 hrs!!! small F's.
The idle temps should settle right down in under 5 min, once you stop running all 4 cores @ 100%
If it does not want to cool down on that low voltage you are using, you might want to re seat your H70.
Keep a close eye on your voltages and temps all the time, CPUZ will show what your Vcore is running different than what you plugged into your bios, if you plugged 1.18V and cpuz is showing 1.78 or 1.79 then you might have too bump it to get it to run at the 1.18.
Oh and make a log and wright down all your settings, it is easy to forget after a few days
