Run your mem @ 1:1, and 4-4-4 if it will do it or you can use a divider if you want faster and 5-5-5. 9x445 will give you 4Ghz, and you will likely need 1.30-1.4v for vcore. What I usually do is boot with a little more vcore than you think you need and reduce it until you get orthos errors. Some prefer the slow steps up approach, but I find this way is faster.
I see you also have speed step on, to keep it from throttling turn off EIST and C1E in the BIOS.
Donkeys kill more people annually than plane crashes or shark attacks.
