I looked some of them up and disabled what was recommended to. I looked around in the other settings in the bios but can't find these. Could they be called something else on the asus p5k?
EDIT: I did some googling. mch= main controller hub = nb. so i set it to 1,3 and set the fsb to 333 which gives me 1066 on ram. Multiplier is 12 and this equals 4 ghz. Testing linpack atm.
EDIT 2: I had it stable at 4,007 ghz for two hours load testing. Now trying 4,15 ghz but I get error on one core after 1 minute 20 seconds.
CPU termination = CPU vtt = CPU FSB and you know now what MCH is, what else...
CPU and PCI-E spread spectrum should always be off,
LLC or load line calibration prevents v-drop and v-droop but has a voltage spike of +0.05v so switch it off
i don't know what GTL is, as this option (along with LLC) is only for P43 and P45 chipsets
now...your overclocking progress is great but @ what voltage did you have 333 x 12 "stable"? and 2 hours of prime 95 blend, is not enough to call an overclock stable, i sometimes get errors after 4-8 hours of blend, but, if you want a fast way to check the stability download OCCT and run the CPU LINPACK test for 1 hour (provided that your CPU is stable enough to last this long)
and when one of the cores fail during testing it simply means more voltage is needed
