Doesn't matter whether I'm at stock or OC'd, that's pretty much as low as I get.

Hehe I get down to 26-28 for the first hour or two just surfing or talking. Then burnout paradise pushes that up to about 39-40. i7's seem to run pretty hot compared to the amd chips, unless my 940 is just that cool . Probably volts though, I'm at 1.344v pretty sure.

Nah, the i7's do run hot
but they can take a lot of heat to compensate. A **** of a lot more heat than a 940 anyway

For the standard 4.2Ghz OC just use these:

Multiplier: x21
Bclk: 200
Vcore: 1.25625v
QPI/DRAM: 1.3v
UCLK: 3200Mhz
DRAM Freq: 1600Mhz
QPI LDR: ~7200MT/s
Load Line Calibration: Enabled

Check your temps, do a few load tests. If you're stable, drop the QPI/DRAM voltage down a notch.

Ok so far my settings are:

AI overclock: XMP mode
Intel Turbo Mode: Off
BCLK: 200
Vcore 1.25625
QPI/DRAM: 1.3
DRAM FRQ: 1600
UCLK: 3200
QPI LDR: 7200 MT/S
CPU PLL: 1.96
CPU differential AMP: 800 MV
Load Line Calibration : On
DRAM BUS Volt: 1.64

I am guessing my multiplier isnt going to 21 since turbo mode is off, but I am running Prime95 at 4 Ghz and staying at 66 C and stable for the past half hour so far. Does everything look good?

Ok didnt make it stopped at about 40 minutes

i lied, i didnt read the test correctly it failed within 3 minutes hahaha

Bump your VCore up a little more. I'm running mine at 1.3volts. Every setup is a little different even if you have the exact same parts.
