I have ran Intel Burn Test passing 40+ runs. I have also done Prime 95 for 3.5hours without any problems.

I am just finding it strange that my Vcore is fairly low.

What do you guys think about these settings? Anything I should change?

Thank You.

Yeah, the temps are low as well as teh vcore

Can you run IBT on maximum on 8 threads and see how that goes, I noticed you're missing a thread on prime95. That can be an unstable overclock.

The last thread on Prime95 is actually on the very bottem. I didnt expand the screen enough.

I did IBT on maximum and "All CPU Meter" had all 8 threads running.

I'll do another few runs and see how it goes.

Are there anything that you would recommend me changing?
I was thinking of decreasing the Vcore a bit more.

I'm shocked you're stable at that tbh I would leave it there.

I am shocked too. Most people are running around 1.20V or more at 3.8ghz from what I have read.
That's why I have posted this to ask if my settings in my BIOS are correct.

No offence here, but screw you, I hate my life

3.8Ghz @1.22v

God dammit, I might try dropping the multiplier to 19 and then running a 200 BCLK
