    try with qpi/dram core voltage at 1.39v and manually set cpu voltage to 1.38v,see if it will boot,then you can set about lowering voltages once its stable,for my board i need 1.36v cpu voltage and 1.38v for qpi voltage and thats at 4ghz-4.2ghz,but each cpu will be different in needing voltages,my other chip uses alot less for 4.2ghz

    you still might need an insane amount of qpi/dram core voltage to run those ram speeds,i only run my ram at 1600mhz when clocked to 4.2ghz,so you could either lower ram speed or run with around 1.42-1.45v qpi/dram voltage its up to you

    k, i dont really wish to run OTT Volts so maybe 1866 should be more realistic, will let you know how it goes ...

    you wont see much if any improvement in read/write figures from 1600mhz to 1800mhz ram speeds,depends on if you can get it stable and how much qpi voltage needed for 1866mhz

    started prime and after 5 or so minutes temps went to 87 so stopped it there and then, i think im being a little too optimistic with the 4ghz under the current cooling i have, maybe ?

    will try 3.8 and 1600 .....

    what cpu voltage did you set? could try around 1.25v cpu voltage for 3.8ghz and 1.35-1.38v qpi/dram voltage

    Think i have found some stability......

    tried 3.8 and 1604 with qpi@1.37 and cpu@1.25 then 1.26 but kept getting BCCode 124 until i set cpu @ 1.27, did just over 1hr with prime and no errors (will test longer over night)

    so my settings so far:

    BCLK = 160
    CPU RATIO = 24
    DRAM = 1604
    CPU VOLT = 1.27
    QPI/DRAM = 1.37

    CPU Temp idles @ 38-40
    75-79 under load

    Would like to set mem timings at 8 8 8 24, do you think this is possible ? current Ram voltage is 1.65 ....

    should be able to run 8-8-8-24 without extra voltage, does cpu throttle down when idle?
