Thanks for the response. Ya if I drop the voltage one setting it gets hardware failures and if I drop it two settings it bsod. So it looks like I have gotten all i will get. I can go to 5.2 but it needs 1.480-1.500v and as much as I dont care about this chip I do need it to keep working even after I upgrade to the 9900k. It would be interesting to see just how far it will go on water.
I will say the stability got much better after I installed a water loop that included the Vram. The temps came down about 20c.
I also increased the dram voltage from 1.050v to 1.200v that made it rock solid at the rams advertised speeds of 2666mhz at xmp 1.
BTW i loved that OC guid to happiness! good stuff.

So using this guid and the advice here I have manged to get my voltages down to much lower levels and got a higher clock as well.
I am at
5.0ghz, 4.9ghz avx at 1.310v Prime95 stable
5.1ghz, 5.0ghz avx at 1.390v Prime 95 stable
5.2ghz, 4.8ghz avx at 1.45v Aida 64 stable, gaming profile only. I picked up about 15-20 fps from 5.0ghz
Now I am going to try and set the same profiles but with adaptive mode.

Why should you use adaptive voltage? What are the benefits?
