I was at 1.38v for the cpu and got like 13 minutes before BSOD'd from Prime 95. I bumped it one notch 1.9...v and we'll see what's what. I upped my QPI also to 1.275v. My temps during Prime were low 80's, Kinda scary.
Low eighties. I would agree not good. Your temperature pic is not taken during stress testing then. Not that it would go that high in normal operation. More powerful fans on the H70 will gain a little but I found 4.2 about the limit for my H50 push/pull with shroud on push. Then I went to water. Rasa kits are good value. A 240?

With p95, the blend test tests both ram and cpu. If you run small fft test, and it crashes/errors, then that is most likely cpu. I would expect you to need over 1.3 QPI with 12GB ram. Was it a 124 bsod or a 101 or? It should be in the "windows had an error" popup details tab on restart, otherwise disable restart on error and note your bsod number before manually rebooting. Check it against the bsod list I posted. That can help isolate the issue.

There are links to overclocking guides on page one of this thread that could be helpful too....

Not sure which error it was, I closed the error in disgust as soon as windows started. Anyway I got it to finally pass a full test. 16min. No Errors. Temps were 78c-82c Prime 95.

Here are my new numbers, seems good on preliminary test. I will run a full 6-8hour test tomorrow. Shot now though, gotta get some sleep. Thanks for the feedback guys. Stay tuned

Thanks. AlanC was right about the Turbo boost. I disabled that baby and was able to get much higher oc's at lower voltages. Still under 1.4v so that makes me happy. Gotta get this baby on the board so I can see it in the standings.

if anyone has the same setup as me... and is overclocked faster and stable please pm me a template or suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Please update.

At 4416MHz I can pass all the stress testing, but if I play GTA4 I will get sporadic freizures.....
