below are my settings for a tested 24hr prime95 blend run:

CPU CLOCK RATIO 21X
QPI CLOCK RATIO X36
UNCORE CLOCK X16
ISOCHRONOUS SUPPORT ENABLED
BCLK 191
PCI EXPRESS FREQUENCY 100
CPU CLOCK DRIVE 800mV
PCI EXPRESS CLOCK DRIV 900mV
CPU CLOCK SKEW 0ps
IOH CLOCK SKEW 0ps
PERFORMANCE ENHANCE STANDARD
EXTREME MEMORY PROFILE DISABLED
SYSTEM MEMORY MULTIPLIER 8.0
DRAM TIMING SELECTABLE AUTO
INTEL TURBO BOOST DISABLED
CPU MULTI-THREADING ENABLED <-- i want to leave it enabled
C1E DISABLED
C3/C6/C7 DISABLED
CPU EIST FUNCTION DISABLED
BI-DIRECTIONAL PROCHOT ENABLED
VIRTUALIZATION TECHNOLOGY ENABLED
LOAD LINE CALABRATION STANDARD
CPU VCORE 1.375V <-- SET IN BIOS
QPI/VTT 1.335V <-- SET IN BIOS
CPU PLL 1.880V <-- SET IN BIOS
PCIE AUTO --> SHOWS 1.500V IN BIOS
QPI PLL AUTO --> SHOWS 1.100V IN BIOS
IOH CORE 1.200V <-- SET IN BIOS
ICH I/O AUTO --> SHOWS 1.500V IN BIOS
ICH CORE 1.200V <-- SET IN BIOS
DRAM VOLTAGE 1.640V <-- SET IN BIOS

my chip is a i7-930 batch#:3001a125

room temp is 79f <-- max summer temp in house

in a 20min run with prime95 blend my max core temp is 80c using an h50 with 133 cfm fan in pull mode. i am wanting to lower my vcore to help reduce my temp and i was wondering what other voltage adjustments i could make to help reduce the vcore. any sugestions would be much appreciated. o yea if you use my settings and melt your machine it is not my fault. :)

Don't know what your question is?

Lower your voltages and test, every chip/mb is different.

H50 with 133 cfm fan and still a little high on temps, you may want to consider different cpu cooling if you are determined to stay at 4.0 Ghz.

i think there are some voltages you can increase which will allow you to decrease the vcore. since i am still a noob at this i am not shure which ones to increase.

Did you try lowering some of your voltages and test?

What is your vcore at 100% load?

it runs about 1.32 to 1.34 under load with the settings i have now and hits 80c after about 20 min of prime

Well, you have three choices:

Lower voltages and test.
Lower your OC.
Buy a better cooler.
