That validation was 1.28xx in bios with LLC disabled. It wasn't stable. I did a little stability testing with the same voltage @ 4.0. Although I didn't fully test it, the thing just felt very stable and seemed to be laughing in my face if you know what I mean. So I bumped up the baseclock to see if it would even load @ 4.2. I was suprised I was able to get the validation at that low of vcore. 3 workers failed in Prime but didn't bsod before I stopped. That leaves me to believe it is pretty close. Walked up the vcore to 1.3v in BIOS (1.258v under load if I remember right) and 1 worker failed about 30 minutes in, getting closer.

At that point I called it quits for now. This was just a preliminary run to see what I had. I'll do alot more testing with it once I get the new fans and TIM in. Stay tuned.

Cool, yeah, I need to order, or rig up a 2nd fan for my Mugen 2. With my current OC, 4.0Ghz @ 1.270V underload, it ran prime95 for 8.5 hours, so I called it good. I'm not going to be folding with it, and my temps aren't too high, 70C Max with prime running/72C Max with IBT.

Now I just need to figure out how to get up to 4.0ghz with 4 DIMM slots used, or return this RAM I bought the other day, haha.

[edit] I tried going up to 4.2 by increasing my multipler to 21, and it BSOD as soon as I ran prime. I bumped the vcore up to 1.35V in the BIOS and same result, so I just went back to 4.0Ghz, now I have to get to work on testing this RAM.
