Looks like you're at about 4GHz on load, which is pretty good. What voltage did you have to use to get it stable?

Also, it shows us a bit more about your setup if you post an additional picture of those same windows while the CPU is under load, such as while IntelBurnTest is running.

My 950 takes about 1.25 for 4Ghz so you may want to try that. Also at 1.325 for 4.2Ghz for me at least. May want to try those Vs.

21*200 for 4.2 and 23*175 for 4Ghz.
