Okay, so funny thing is happening. I was looking back at some past OC's wondering WHY in HECK I'm not stable @ 4ghz CPU @ 1.49v, CPU-NB 3ghz @ 1.43 and Ram @ 1600 Cas 6 @ 2.08v (high Volt Ram)

So I lowered my NB down to 2ghz Again and Ram at auto and I'm able to get my CPU stable @ 4ghz @ 1.44v (Bios), 1.432v at Idle (CPU-Z) and 1.416v at Load (CPU-Z).... I'm using BIOS 1.84beta again though. I'm going to let it run a few hours just to make sure and then I'm going to try the 1.1A0 and 1.1A2 BIOS to see if it's the same thing. Or if 1.84beta is really as "Special" as I originally thought that it was!? ... weird though huh?
NB 1.3 volts. I am actually running 1.59V core, and am sure I can lower it later.

Ok still playing but here's an update

I can do it with all BIOS, Beta and Official past 1.6, IIRC.... One has to have a Good Set of Ram Modules and a Decent IMC as well... I acn't run those timings with my Kingston 1600 Cas 8 @ 1.65v Hypers not matter the votlage!
Thanks Mastiffman. N2 sends link to his own PM box so I don't have to find the post again.

I still do not understand why do you have the vcore so freaking high? I don't want to see you being one of the users who kills his board by exagerated numbers... Try this... I saw many users using pretty much this same setting for their 1055t 95w: 4.05GHz 1.45v NB 3000MHz 1.35

I am not using the all button because I am comparing the results between freq's.

Vcore is sooooo high because I am "playing" and temps are in check so really I could run this V core 24/7 on the chip. Now as far as the board it is not squeeling yet so it is fine as well. I am going to lower v core as soon as I find my max speed. Plus I only have the vcore up this high 1.59 (real) when "playing"

Update:
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1445518

@crunkazcanbe I am not done yet. Once I find max I will begin dropping Vcore. I do not recommend this Vcore for others! My temps are well within spec and I have a bit of experience with these chips. People that know me would tell you that they are surprised my chip has not seen 1.65 or higher yet under a chiller.

EDIT: just to make you guys feel better about my voltages. actual 1.56 vcore

Tip: if you hear your VRM's you are close to frying them

Yes my board died. Rev 1.0 had week vrm's... So RMA in progress.

The MSI 790FX-GD70 will not handle 300W TDP

O well I figured it was coming no biggie RMA will hopefully bring a rev 1.1 to my door. Stuck with wifes laptop till the board gets here gotta call MSI on MON get my new board cross-shiped and 1-day air... prob cost me about $50
