Given how the Q8300 is a lower-bin processor, looks like your voltages are right where they need to be. I agree with Dork, you need to load the PC for at least an hour with specialized software.

Gaming doesn't qualify - at most you'll load the CPU to 60% with the heaviest games. You need raw math. :rtfm:
Im sorry to bump this thread, but I am sitting on the same setup as you and I was just
wondering if you could post your BIOS settings for this setup.
That would make me very happy
