These voltages are for northwoods

Prescotts, knock another 0.1v off those figures

I may have to remove the heatsink from the northbridge and apply some AS5; one thing I forgot to do during initial assembly.

Anyway, I lowered frequency back down to 3.75 with 1.51-1.53 volts and I'm currently stresstesting. It's gone much longer than I thought it would, surprisingly enough. I'm gonna let it run while I'm at school, just to make sure. Once I'm absolutely certain it's stable, I'll slowly try upping it to 3.8.

I'm also thinking I may have to replace my PSU, since the voltage is indeed fluctuating, as you can see in the screenshot.

I think some fluctuations are normal .... how much amps on the 12v rail does that 600w give out... You are doing well take your time and make sure its stable . slowly take it to 3.8.......
