I am getting high temperature readings while idling (high 40c/low 50c). Any suggestions?

Turn turbo off!
Shoot for 190bclk @ 21 first...keep vcore @ 1.25
Disable HT as well.

(lucky...my 930 doesn't like anything under 1.27vcore for a 4ghz OC)

You shouldn't have any problem hittin 4.0 ghz on the 930. Its up to you if you want to disable "Turbo Mode" and "Hyper Threading". I personally have turbo off and ht is on, i take advantage of it so i left it on. If your overclocking make sure that you turn Intel XMP off, this will screw with your settings and i dont think it'll allow you to make adjustments.

Really? Thats with HT off? I have mine at 4.2 with HT on and its sitting at 1.272. Have you tried tweaking the other voltages?

I have the same board. Since this is a game rig first thing to do is disable HT. Take you QPI off auto and set it to the lowest possible(Auto probably does this already). Set your Uclk to 3062. Basically disable all of the intel tech speed step, c1e, virtualization. Enable Load Line Calibration. Set your differential Amplitude to 1000. Disable Spread Spectrum (CPU and PCIE). Set you CPU and IOH skew to 300. Set your PLL to 1.7(if this boots go to 1.6, if that doesn't boot go back to 1.7, this is an undervolt, but it will help your OC.)

I did everything you said and managed to boot up successfully. When I tried to run a stress test at 4.0GHz, my computer locked up and I got a BSOD of 009x I believe. I then went down to 3.8GHz and everything seems to run fine. My temp still idles around 45c (I managed to lower it with your configuration), should I put some new paste on the CPU/H50? I'm still using the stock paste that was on the H50 and I had to take the H50 off and put it back on twice already. I have purchased after market paste, I just never used it.

I turned the CPU Fan speed (H50 is plugged into) to turbo and turned all the other fans (HDs, H50 radiators push/pull) to lower speeds in the BIOS. I purchased some new cooler master fans and they are loud and the only way to quiet them is to lower the speeds in the BIOS.

If you have any other suggestions on how to quiet/cool my machine down or achieve the 4.0GHz and be able to stress test without crashing WITH my current setup, please let me know! Thanks so much for all your suggestions everyone, I just wish I knew what I was changing and how it was effecting my overclock! (tconroy135)

Can anyone throw me a bone?... Is 40c temp. okay? and 62-65c temp when going through a stress test acceptable?
