From what I've read online about this batch, it does seem pretty good. I was able to get a 4.5 GHz overclock at around 1.296v, which is good. I haven't tried maxing out my chip yet, have you?

Dont modify vccio, it needed for using lots of ram at very high speeds, you dont need to raise it.
You need internal cpu pll overvoltage enabled past 4.4 which you do.
Truth is to be stable your gonna need more vcore.
If youre getting 0124 blu screens, you need more voltage.,
Yeah. I got lucky with my chip replacement, and I was able to get a 12 hour blend off with maximum memory.
However, I'm still debating if my overclock is fully stable, as I had a hard shut down [no BSOD] happen twice each after about 3 hours of playing Crysis 1 [all max settings]. But, last night, I noticed that my DIMM voltage was AUTOing at around 1.5v when my RAM is rated for 1.65v, so I upped that, and played another 3.25 hour session of Crysis 1 up to the last level when everything is going to hell with no crash. So, I'm going to do a full replay of Crysis at this point and see if I can coerce my system into shutting down again, or if I am stable.
