After getting a new case, mobo (asus x58 sabertooth) and hsf, i've since achieved a better overclock. Right now, i'm at 4.2ghz using 1.39vc, 1.32qpi with htt off, LLC off/VDroop on.

When i run small ffts in prime95, my voltage in cpuz/ohm drops to ~1.32. If i turn LLC on, would i lower my voltage to this and expect the same results as i am achieving with 1.39 ?

The only way to know for sure is to try it out yourself and see what happens. Every board and chip will behave differently.

Sounds like an underpowered PSU with that much droop! If you set the VCore to 1.32v and set llc [on], you *might* droop yourself into BSOD!

Chances are, you'll need 1.35v+ on the 920 for 4.2!
