Well I tried speed step and the C-state option, and indeed it does seem to work. No problem running OCCT for an hour. The speed doesn't change much, but the voltages go way down... like to 1.14Vcore at times, at 4ghz.

Do you mean what are my voltages set to, or do you mean what are my temps reading?

Turning off hyperthreading may help stability... but you must be close. There's just a lot of variables.

What batch is your chip?
