with stock speeds, you can lower the core voltage
1.2-1.25 should be fine for it

This^^

And I would suggest this over the spinQ. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835233003$20.99 after rebate.

The freezer pro just can't handle the x4's.

And if you have not already, check out the M2N club in my sig,lots of great people and info for your board.

Good luck
