I have now changed it to 1.32 and LLC to high and running prime currently it's showing min voltage 1.32, max 1.33.....let's see how it goes!! Thanks for your help guys, PS Sandy Bridge Effin rocks. Boot up times even without a SSD are so swift.
What are your temps like in prime? You really shouldn't need that much vcore for 4.5 on that chip. If you prime ok for 15-20 minutes, lower the vcore one step, then test again. It's always good to get the vcore as low as possible and still be stable. It will keep your temps down. Better yet, run LinX for 20 cycles each time. It's fast, and if you pass 20, you are at least reasonably stable.
