Yeah, I'm just saying that you should be able to get alot more out of your voltage in terms of clock frequency, without sacrificing any stability. At that voltage, I'd suspect that you could be in the 4.6 to 4.8 GHz range with a little bit of work.
You asked if anyone could help you get your OC higher, and I'm suggesting that you switch to a manually defined offset mode (if you want to leave speedstep enabled) or go to a straight manual voltage if you want to go that route. In either case, I suspect that you will find that you have the same stability that you enjoy now with a higher clock frequency.
Try experimenting with the offset setting first. After that, you can experiment with reducing your CPU PLL voltage and reducing the amount of LLC that you're using (if your BIOS allows it.)
When it's all said and done you'll learn more about overclocking your rig, have a faster overclock at the same voltage (or a lower voltage at the same overclock), be just as stable, and most likely have an overclock that will provide you with more computational power for a given clock frequency, due to reducing throttling at high load.
There are quite a few folks in this thread who can help you do it and I'd be happy to as well although I am not familiar with the Gigabyte BIOS so you might want to ask a Gigabyte owner for detailed help there.
