BTW, regarding my temps. It looks like its the radiators. They are built for low-speed fans, hence the higher temps.
Yes, the UCLK is the uncore clock. I see, well maybe you should grab some new fans.

OK, made recommended adjustments and I am now testing with Prime95. So far so good.

One question, kschat: 1.35V (for QPI/DRAM Core Voltage) is not .5V from 1.65. Am I understanding correctly that I must creep up from 1.35V until I'm there?

Also, I lowered my RAM speed down from 2006 MHz to 1433 MHz. These are the timings I entered. Are these okay?

DRAM Freq: 715.0 MHz
FSBRAM 2:10
CAS# Latency (CL)- 9
RAS# to CAS# Delay (tRCD)- 9
RAS3 Precharge (tRP) - 9
Cycle Time (tRAS) - 24
Row Refresh Cycle Time (tRFC) - 74
Command Rate (CR) - 1T

Well 1.35 is just a good voltage to start at because its almost guaranteed to be stable (1.4 is max according to intel). I was set it to 1.35 and once you have a stable overclock start to bump it down a bit.
