Don't boot into Windows when the overclock hasn't been stablized with memtest. Cuz doing so can corrupt your Windows to the point it no longer boots.

Push it to 3.6ghz (9 x 400). Keep vdimm at stock. You may have to up vcore & vNB/vFSB.

You want to take your load voltage readings from CPU-Z as you may have a slight vdroop causing the voltage on the CPU to be lower than that set in the BIOS.

The fail will be from slight lack off vcore, on the plus you must be close to stable to get 18 minutes stable :) .

cpuz reads 1.25 but the bios set it to 1.29350 so i have vdroop 0.04 is it danger to make all that happens
