... Thanks for taking the time to reply. I got as far as x43 CPU and x37 Cache. AIDA, Realbench & Cinebench stable. Only 15 minute runs for now.
CPU Offset: 0.190 resulting in CPU max voltage of 1.3120
Cache Offset: 0.268 resulting in Cache max voltage of 1.2531
SA Offset: 0.349 resulting in VCCSA max voltage of 1.2480
I tried taking the cache voltage up and beyond 1.4v and could not get a stable cache overclock beyond x37
Initial benchmark comparison between 5930K and 5960X: https://www.3dmark.com/compare/fs/18844287/fs/18813210
I will try and put full BIOS up later, see if anyone has any suggestions about breaking the x37 barrier.

Once you find your stable max, add a little vcore, then start pegging the cache.
My 5930k initially was very picky about cache speed, but basically making the cache voltage just a little less than vcore, I was able to pull off a current overclock of 4.25ghz core, 4ghz cache, without going over 1.3 volts.
System Agent voltage will most likely need to be over 1.1 volts, as will IO voltages for cpu and chipset. But I also have 4 sticks of 8gb ram at 3ghz, so SA voltage needed a bump just to run those sticks at rated 3ghz, let alone running the cache fast.
