i'd suggest bumping up the blck to 200 and use multiplier of 21 to get 4.2 and ram speeds to 1600mhz at rated timings and stock voltages
but as for cpu voltages you will need to increase it a bit
i set my load line calibration at 100%
my i7 950 needs quite a bit of vcore, not sure why, we've been trying to solve it but i think its a bad chip that's all, so no big deal lol, 4.2 @ 1.47v is not that bad really for me
but for you i believe you will only need about 1.38v for 4.2ghz and stock ram speeds/volts
i'd increase the nb and sb voltages by one notch because of the blck increase to 200
try it and let me know
I will give this a try when I get home later. If I am stable at 4.0Ghz why would I want to go to 4.2Ghz? Is this a more stable number to be at? If that is the case I will bump it up, if not I will just stick to 4.0Ghz.
I have my LLC at 50% per the person on that lasty page whos BIOS settings I coppied. I should change this to 100% even if I do not try for 4.2? In fact you can go back a page see exactly what my settings are.
I am worried about upping the vcore because I am already hitting 78C with 1.28vcore. I would be pleased with 4.0 but again if 4.2Ghz seems to be more stable I will try that. I am just worried about starting this whole process all over again with BSODs and such
Also, just to be clear the 1.28vcore is ok for 4.0Ghz correct? Again, thanks for the help.
