I am getting ready to leave in a couple of days for some predeployment training, so I don't have time to run it again. Add me or don't, it's whatever. I've proven to myself that I'm stable so...
Well I tested it and all is well. See:
Maybe you clicked on the wrong exe.

Any idea what causes this? Is it an inefficiency in my mobo or something? It's mostly just annoying, doesn't really change much.
Disable spread spectrum and that should sort the base clock out.

I've set the bios for the CPU to have 4.0Ghz at 1.185Volts. I've ran P95 overnight for 9 hours with no workers failing, and have done 100 passes of IBT with no failure. On load I run around 40 - 45C.
My question is: Is my voltage to high for 4.0Ghz?
I'm also having another issue. My BCLK is 99.8, which is due to Intel Speed Step. I tried to set my BCLK to 100.2 to balance it out, but then in CPU-Z it shows 100.2 instead of 100. Anyway I can fix this without disabling speedstep?
Well its hard to say because there ain't many overclocks in that region on the spreadsheet, however below 1.2v is considered pretty good. I'm quite certain you could probably increase the multiplier to around 42/43 and keep that same voltage and still be stable.
Also Speedstep is the control for multiplier drop, in conjunction with C1E and offset voltage, it allows the voltage to drop along with the multiplier when at idle or low load. What I think you mean is Spread Spectrum, as mentioned above, disable it and it'll lock your base clock to 100.
Hope that helps. One other thing, welcome to OCN, be sure to fill in your system spec (instructions on how to do that is in my sig) and read the first page of the thread

Following the guide in the first post this should be all I need to enter.

Thanks for the screenshot, I'll you to the spreadsheet in a moment. Thanks again, appreciate the contribution

Seems stable now @ 1.35v. Not sure if my temps are alright at this vcore.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'm going to try for 5ghz @ 18.104.22.168v. & then tighten my timings.
You should certainly run it for longer before determining stability, I recommend 12 hours atleast. In terms of voltage, that is pretty decent for 4.8ghz. Be sure to download the correct realtemp version to gain entry to club and spreadsheet. Link is available in the OP.

Im pretty sure his load voltage is 1.45ish as he stats its set to 1.465v in bios and the cpu-z shot was on idle or bugged if you really do have a 5ghz @ 1.116v then yah.. OWWOWOWOW lol
Yeah, that is why it is a requirement for Gigabyte users to screenshot Easytune, CPU-Z is reporting the I/O voltage for some reason, however Easytune does the job correctly and reads the load voltage, which is 1.464v in this case.
