    If you are hitting 80C in prime you need a better cooler, or less voltages.

    Wow 1.76 on air, that's bold of you :)

    Yup i guess i need watercooling for 4.2ghz but for now i only manage to get megahalems so max heat that mega can take is at 4ghz... maybe if i change my paste noctua NT-H1 or change myfan with silverstone FM121 might gives better temp.... @Lsdmeasap, i set vcore 1.64volt but cpuz reads 1.76v.... which is actually the real or most closest to real sensor of temp? bios or cpuz? real temp ... etc?
    Btw prof jim here my SS at 4ghz, i tested with OCCT level normal only 15minutes like ur SS before :)

    CPU-z voltage would be correct, are you using Level 2 LLC if so that is why it is more than you are setting.

    That's too much voltage to be using really, I would back off it myself

    Yup i think its too much voltage but if i keep pulling down for vcore it wont stabil in stressing test or even wont boot to desktop... btw thx @lsdmeasap :)
    Now i just focus to lower voltage for 4ghz ... i.5volt is ok to boot into desktop but to pass test needs more vcore up until 1.58750volt for OCCT stressed level normal 1 hour, again here SS :

    @lsdmeasap ---> i dont use LLC level 2 , in my bios setting it shows only " LLC ---> [Enabled]" thats all bro.

    Maybe it is because you are setting it too high, so it thinks you want more automatically :)

    its just to high a voltage to be running on the cpu for long term usage unless they have changed the specs.
    You should be able to get away with less.
    try like the next step up in PLL.
    Put Vtt just below the cpu voltage u enter so if like you enter 1.43 v for cpu put vtt on 1.42.
    the memory voltage, a target of 2.00 volts doesnt seem right.
    I get 2000fsb 4.0Ghz on a x8 multiplier.
    I wouldnt hold much hope of getting much higher than that reliably.
    If I had a 8.5 or 9 multiplier maybe,

    Go for 3.9ghz cpu.around 490cpu ref Once that is absolutely stable then increase voltages etc towards your 500cpu ref,actually get it to 505 ,4.04 ghz stable, then back the cpu ref down to 500. .Voltages etc go up a lot from 490 to 500 for me,much much more than at lower speeds.
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    HEC 6A34 case . ....................... Jeantec R2 case............................ Packard Bell case

    Qlsdmeasap---> i think you're right bro, mymobo automatically sets vcore too high because of my high setting, but at 3.6ghz i set vcore 1.3625volt and bios reads 1.39v, cpuz reads 1.376v... dont u think its also higher volts automatically set by mymobo??
    @kick--> thx for ur advice :) i will try lower it later ... btw i dont use it for long term just benchmark then back to 3.6ghz ^_^ ... PLL seems need to set higher inorder to try low vcore, is that what u mean? for 4ghz i set 1.59 for vcore later i'll try maybe 1.6v.... about my vram is it wrong to set 2volt for 1000mhz in my patriot blade DDR2 PC8500 1066mhz?? at 1066mhz it needs 2.1volt so i think if lower than 1066mhz like 1000mhz then vram only needs less than 2.1volt --->2volt..... is it wrong? plz advice me :) [need to learn more].

    Ya then, it looks like your Mobo or the current BIOS you are using is overvolting things a little bit

    Mymobo use bios F11 by default... and Rev 1.1 ... should i try flash bios and get better one? Any suggest for better bios for overclocking? ^_^

    Is that the latest BIOS for your board? If not I would get the latest here

    Be sure to read the flashing guide if you have not flashed before, and DO NOT USE @BIOS
