    'm using this settings for Oc'ing intel 3930K on Asus P9X79WS : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kx2z07sFM2I
    I have 4.6 GHz with 1.325 V but when running LinX or Prime it's dropping below 1.3 when looking at CPU-Z at full load. I guess this is why I might get stability issues even when pumping more voltage. When I stop test voltage is coming back to what I set in bios. Why it's happening?

    Increase your LLC setting to the second from the highest, on Asus boards it is usually "very high". This will keep the voltage from dropping so far.
