Cad - Did you have any issues with this thing at 50x multi or so? Reason I ask is b/c it is throttling when Im sitting at 50x and goes down to 47x with a heavy multi threaded (Prime05/Wprime) load. I actually had to have Cstate enabled to even be able to use the 50x multi with more than 2 cores. Otherwise it would boot in to windows at 49x.
I have all power options disabled, wattage set to 250W under turbo, Overspeed proctection disabled.
If not, what bios are you on and is there a chance you could screenshot those settings?
