    I think I'm going to stay at my current settings, since temps are acceptable on max load. Like I said, with prime95 I barely break 70c.
    On the QPI voltage, I've read on a lot of forums and overclocking pages and it seems 90percent of the people agree that a qpi voltage of 1.4-1.43 is very acceptable for 24/7 usage. Since alot of the 2000mhz memory kits require high dram votage and qpi. My kingston hyperX kit automatically puts the QPI to 1.4 when I select the XMP profile. I've tested it on ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte and it does it on all of them. Apparently as long as the QPI voltage stays within the .5v difference from the Dram voltage its fine. What are your thoughts on that?
    I can easily run my bclk at 210-220 however I cant really use it as my cpu wont let me use the 23x multi. It goes from 21 to 22 and then jumps to 24, even though I select 23 in the bios. When I reboot its 24 again.
    For the most part I'm just super impressed with this cpu and the amount of vcore it needs for 4.5ghz :)

    Thanks a lot for your input. Really appreciate hearing from you and your thoughts :)

    BTW, you have one really sweet rig yourself! very nice!
