    i agree i can run 4.3 with some instability at 1.42 i run 1.45 for inbetween 4.3 and 4.5 stable 4.6 needs a bit more but then the board gives up.

    yeah I just looked into the bios and the one just by looking at the stock voltages...I would guess the SPP <-> MCH or however its labled, but digging on that gives me that it controlls the voltage for NB to SB tranfer. Ther may be a good possibility that your mobo does NOT even have the option.

    I know for a fact my Foxconn doesnt have the option and it did require a bit more to hit 4.0GHz and I couldnt get 4.1GHz stable no matter what the CPU voltages were without it.

    Could look into the GTL ref voltages, I found lowering mine a bit on the DFI's seemed to add a bit more stability, but again I have no idea where your even starts at stock. In the DFI they are based on percentages, and looking at some bios screen for the EVGA they showed 0% at stock. Not sure where to go from there!

    Google your mobo model number and "bios" after it, I found some threads at XS and a few reviews as well that TRY to explain whats going on in thet bios!

    Yeah, I just looked around in my bios again and the only things I haven't touched are the gtl vref lanes. The SPP and MCP are north and south bridge, and I have tried upping the voltages on everything but the gtl vrefs, which idk what they are stock. The options for those are +00mv to +160mv in increments of 5mv. Stock setting is +00mv, but idk what the "+" is on top of or what safe values are. One of the main OC guides on the evga 780i forums says to just leave them at auto.

    edit: linky to that guide here

    Sorry for double post, but I find this information relevant enough to warrant a new post:

    A couple interesting reads about GTL Ref voltages. First one is a couple years old, but still relevant and linked to by the second one which is newer and more simplified.

    edit:
    Does that mean that the FSB voltage in my bios is the same as VTT in other bios?

    edit: I found my VTT :D
    edit: Extremely relevant guide for me!
