    Ok, I seem to be making progress. I am up to 4.11 with vcore and qpi at 1.3+v. have enabled the c states and set dvid as you suggested. Prime 95 is cycling nicely. however my temps are hitting 86-87 degrees. I set my uncore to x17 as well. I should also mention that I am using a Silverstone Raven air cooling case.

    Am I right in thinking that reducing voltages reduces temps?

    How we making out? So far all looks ok. I just hope that 4.11 is a typo and you ment 1.41v for vcore.

    Ways to reduce temp.

    Reduce ambient room temp.
    Drop overclock. Dont run such a high overclock.
    disable multi threading. Unless needed.
    lower voltage. You can only lower untill the system becomes unstable.
    invest in better thermal paste or make sure properly applied.
    invest in better air cooler or consider water cooling.

    I meant 4.11 on the cpu speed. Sorry.

    Regarding my temps, I cant affect the temp in my room and the case I'm using is the Silverstone, which to my understanding is the best air cooling system within its price bracket. Am now looking to reduce voltages. Have also reduced speed to 4.03 but no difference in temps.

    Will report back.

    Just lower dvid voltage a few clicks at a time and retest,temps should come down then

    So don't touch the qpi then you reckon? Currently got it down to 1.295v My patriot 1600 modules are running at 1536 as well. Will I see any real difference by not being able to run them at the full 1600? My timings are 8-8-8-24

    Id concentrate on one voltage at a time,its CPU voltage that creates the most heat,plus we are in the middle if summer which won't help,you have two fans attached in a push/pull setup? I do and it will help reduce CPU temp a little

    You won't see any difference,I don't see much from running at 1800 or 1600mhz

    Also remember for daily use your cpu wont be at 100% usage like Prime95 or LinX will. Reducing voltage is a good idea just remember you wont be generating all that heat all the time. If you game your gpu will probably put out more heat then the cpu.

    Like wazza said concentrate on 1 voltage at a time. If you change more then one and your overclock fails it will be harder to know which one was the bad move.

    If your ram is not quite at full speed you wont notice a difference. If anything depending on how much underspeed you are. You could try tighter timings. Try some thing like 7-8-7-20.

    Running tighter timings you may have to increase your qpi/vtt voltage.

    I do indeed have a push/pull fan set up with 2 noctua fans on the cooler and one silverstone fan sat on top of the case. There are also 3 base fans sat on the bottom of the case. Basically a lot of fans all pushing the air out of the top!

    I would like to chase the 4.20cpu/1600 carrot, but to be honest I'm guessing the difference between that and 4.03 is probably not much. Id rather have as low temps and power consumption as possible.

    Will continue to post results. Thanks for all your tips so far guys. Very friendly and welcoming on here.

    Oh, I meant to ask. You mentioned turning of hyper threading to help with temps. Again, I'm guessing I don't really need that turned on to run games, browsing and downloading?

    I'm at 4.2ghz with 1.2625v (1.23v with vdroop)and 1.3v qpi but that's my limit due to 80c on one core,some CPU's use more voltage and run cooler and vice versa it just depends on each chip,

    Up to you if you wanna run multithreading,you should be able to
