try 1.175v and work down from there. I'd turn off turbo too, then.

I will say though, that it's recommended to leave all that good stuff on when overclocking...1155 isn't like previous platforms.

What motherboard do you have? If its a H one then I dont think it has OCing features so you may be screwed with using speedstep

you need to turn off C1E and such, as well as change power profile within windows to set minimum processor speed to 100%, as seen in the attached picture.
