Very nice voltages indeed.

Slowly but surely getting to the 5Ghz barrier

Nice, Seems like pretty high voltage for air though? What load temps you hitting with that?

Unless you are just running benchmarks 3DMark11 is not a good program to test CPU stability or load temps. Use linx or prime95 for at least 3 hours. 1.432v is way too high for air cooling I can promise you that and you should be able to achieve 4.3GHz at a much lower voltage with that chip.

IntelBurnTest is another good app. Same as LinX, different interface. They are up to 2.5 now.

I have a i7 920 up to 4.2GHz without any issues 100% stable from the release of the D0 CPU running at 1.275v. The only other voltage I raised was CPU VTT to 1.2v.

I would suggest that you do this the correct method and start from stock clock and voltage. Lower the memory multiplier so that it does not limit you and start working your way up. Keep increasing clock until you lose stability at which point add CPU voltage. Once you find your max either through stability or max temperature then set your memory. If you are unstable due to memory add to the CPU VTT voltage.

As I said before 3DMark11 is no way to test system stability. It will not fully load all of your cpu cores so you are getting an inaccurate stability and temperature test. If you are reaching 76 in 1 run of 3dMark then I can promise you that it will be a lot higher when running linx or prime95.
