You must have an excellent chip then. Anything OC'd to 4.5-4.6GHz with a max voltage less than 1.2xx volts is phenomenal in my book!

Yeah I understand that it's running at a low voltage and I have no adjustment on my V Droop as well. Or I should say that I've not adjusted or compensated for V Droop like I used to with the Bulldozer.

I'm running quite hot around here...might have set something wrong. Got the cpu voltage at 1.245v

Max:
Core #0: 78
Core #1: 90
Core #2: 88
Core #3: 80

And i think i'll have to try another Tim Paste just to see.

Let's work on your voltage before you reapply any thermal paste NoN. How do you have your CPU overclocked? Did you run the OC tuner, or what?

Nope! No Oc Tuner...

Set in Bios, Cpu Load line calibration to "High", And Cpu Capability to "110%", VRM Fixed Frequency Mode to "250KHz", Cpu Power Thermal Control to "130C".

In the Digit+ Power Control, CPU & DRAM Power Phase Control are on "Optimized"

At 4.1 it runs much cooler!

Max:
Core #0: 64
Core #1: 73
Core #2: 70
Core #3: 64

Sounds like you might have too much going on there to keep things straight. LOL (OK, maybe that's just me...)

I just try and keep things simple, while letting it do it's offset/dynamic stuff on the side. I set the base Vcore, multiplier, and then keep an eye on the measured Vcore and core temps to stay within safe limits as well as CPU temps and fan speeds since I set up fan curves based on CPU temps.

OK. You're on the right track. LLC can be set to High or Ultra, but we'll worry more about that when we get some other things straightened out. CPU Capability I usually run at 130-140%. VRM Frequency, I would leave on auto, and 130 is fine for Thermal Control. I have my Power Phase Controls set to Auto and have had no issues.

On the AI Tweaker tab, are you running a manual voltage, or an offset voltage? If offset, is it calculating the offset automatically(set on auto). It sounds like it might be. Have you ever found your lowest stable manual voltage? If not, we can start there. You can enter in your multiplier, say 42, and start off with a manual CPU voltage of 1.200v. If it boots into Windows, fire up Intel Burn Test, AIDA64 or Prime95 and your other monitoring programs and see if it's stable. We'll go from there. Here are some screenshots of my BIOS settings and they work really well, and should work well across the entire range of Asus Z77 boards.

Ok, I'll check those screenshots...i'm set on X.M.P., not manual. And Ai Tweaker Tab is Offset mode +.

Might not post some results too soon, just the time to check & play around!

Thank for your input KBrad!

PS: doesn't CPU voltage of 1.200v seems too low? More of 1.230v?

NON, when you said you were getting too hot, look at the CPUz Voltage in the first shot while IBT was running. It's 1.328. Your temps were probably about right for that vcore during IBT. Kelly's bios is set up right for overclocking. My bios is the same except for dram timings , frequency and voltage and the vcore settings. I think 1.2V is about right for 4.2. Many chips will run 4.2 on stock voltage. Have a read if you want to. This is what Kelly and I both pretty much go by, it works. Ivy Bridge Overclocking Guide#

Yeah, it may be a little different for different chip types (and actually, even chips of the same type), but for mine it's roughly:

1.225 for stock
1.250 for 4.2
1.275 for 4.3
1.300 for 4.4
1.325 for 4.5
1.355 for 4.6
1.385 for 4.7
1.415 for 4.8
