6strings you try fiddling with load line calibration, its stops your voltage from dropping when a large load is applied to the CPU.

hey YFG, i recognize that memory

Thanks Shake, gave that a whirl but no dice.
with load line calibration enabled it still drops to 24.
Probably time to try a different approach and go back to tinkering til I can get the ram stable at an odd frequency with the cpu above 4ghz.

Do you have an option to turn the turbo boost off? I would think you would have better luck with finding stable oc without the multiplier fluctuations.

Yes bond normally its off as I have to enable EIST to access it. I disable EIST when trying to OC of course, and C states as well. Load Line Calibration is on too. I think as other as stated x25 is not going to happen on an x58 24/7. Maybe its possible on some boards but not my low end x58m.
I have it running at 174x23 right now for 4002ghz +0.18v. Ram seems to be ok @1746mhz 9,9,9,24 1.65v(can probably lower vram). I ran prime95 for 20mins without a hitch. I'll run a longer test later in the comps spare time.

I have it stable at 174x23 as stated above. I brought the cpu voltage down to +0.14 and temps are much better. Any lower and the system isn't stable. I bumped the qpi voltake up to 1.40v to help with stability. This board seems to prefer high qpi. It goes up to 1.52v before going into the red zone so I am well within limits. Now that I have it stable I turned the c-states back on to cut down on power usage and heat.

CPU @ 100% Load = 77'C(30mins prime95) 4002ghz 23x174 1.32v

Much better than before.
