Yes that has got me thinking if i need more vcore. I wish i knew what to do in bios but it's so much different than the 775 ones i had for years.
Basically set your multiplier to 19 or 21 although some have success with 22. then up your BCLK (kinda like FSB) and hen make sure your RAM speed is set to something stable and something you like. if its 1600 RAM try to stay around that speed while overclocking the CPU. once CPU is stable then you can overclock the RAM. After multiplier, BCLK, and RAM speeds are set boot to windows and see if its stable using prime95. check your temperatures making sure they don't go over about 65 or 70 C using s program like real temp.
And you said you have done some overclocking before so i'm assuming you know you'll need to up voltages for a higher overclock. But from my experience my i5 doesn't require a lot of voltage i got to 4.166 GHz using 1.256 volts vCore.
I didn't do much overclocking before I got my i5 so i'm not sure if there are more or less voltages but its nothing that someone in here can't help you out with. And if all else fails this is OCN so someone can help you.. lol
