75 isnt bad ... as long as you dont go much higher ...

Nah, I'm going to leave it at 4 GHz for now. I think I need to get another fan or two for the case though. Are there slimmer fans than the Cooler Master 120mm ones that I have? I can't fit one on the transparent side of the case with the Hyper 212+.

With 12GB of ram, I would increase your QPI. Mine is sitting in the mid 1.3's with no issues. I have a good friend who is a seasoned socket 1366 OC'er, and he has advised me to increase the QPI > 1.3v for stability. It has worked for me.
