Ok, I took pictures of everything in my bios with a camera. Here it all is: http://imgur.com/a/lInYg
Here is what those settings give me (Note: I am not even sure I am stable at this level, I was able to run a prime95 1344 for 15 minutes at 1.37V, but at 1.34-1.35V earlier worker 1 was giving me a fatal error, rounding error message, either that or a BSOD 124.
Settings look okay to me, you're missing a few settings because of the motherboard you have, but still it shouldn't matter that much. Continue increasing the vcore until you reach stability. You could also try and see how VCCIO helps, somewhere between stock and 1.125v could help with overall stability.

I'm also very pleased to say my latest rig is coming along better then I could have hoped and is in the final refinement stages. All the basic OCing stages are complete and I'm getting fairly stable 5.0Ghz OC's at 1.368vcore. (I manually stopped the last one at 4 hours) That said, I do have a dilemma for which any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I've tested a few different setting combinations and I'm unsure which is the more ideal route?
A: High LLC combined with a + offset to reach 1.1v~ idle / 1.368v~ load
B: Very High LLC combined with a - offset to reach 1v~ idle / 1.368v~ load
When a BSoD takes 5-6 hours to pop up, I know I'm on the edge of 24/7 stability but I'm confused as to which of these two paths would be better to work with for my final adjustments. If my idle vcore is too low, it could lead to BSoD. Yet, how low is too low? Is using a negative offset value reasonable if it requires something in a 0.02-0.04 range?
PS: Thx again to everyone who's helped with this thread. Oh... w00t 1st post!
Unfortunately the question "how low is too low?" is difficult to answer. To eliminate that out of the question I would and have used HIGH LLC as apposed to Ultra high to get a higher idle voltage, that's not to say that ultra high LLC with a lower idle voltage will cause idle bsod. It's just about eliminating that first hand. I would recommend that you use HIGH LLC when using offset voltage. If you take a look at my other thread HERE
, scroll down to the part where it says "LLC Setting and it's impact on overclocking with the use of Offset voltage" and have a read on that.

core voltage - 1.464v
BIOS settings are the same as my post before just load line is at level 8 now at 1.455v
when the CPU is on 100% load the vcore jumps too around 1.5 -1.49
idle temps are from 30 to 36 load temps are from 61 to 68
strange thing is it will play demanding games for long periods of time and not crash or get blue screen errors but when i run the bled test it cant handle it for more than 3 hours
any help would be much appreciated
Reduce the LLC level to around 7 or 6, it should hopefully reduce the vdroop and not spike it that high, obviously you will have to compensate the vcore by increasing the voltage. By the way what was the error code? Not all of these chips are guaranteed to run 5ghz stable, some of the lucky ones are able to do below 1.4v, some around the 1.45v, there are some that need close 1.5v and there are some that it won't even run 5ghz no matter what the vcore is.
Please post your BIOS screenshots as you have them so we can take a closer look
Please use the OCN image attachment method (button next to the paerpclip called image)
