Apparently to get it to 1600mhz proper, I'm supposed to enable a setting in the UEFI called XMP, and doing so clocks it to 1600mhz, without causing the crashing.

Whatever, it works. Stable at a 4.2ghz overclock for 6 hours so far.
WOW what are your temps with the water? How many times have you looked by the front door for your newegg box? LOL
