Congrats man, sounds like you got a real winning chip.
Wish mine was as good (I need 1.300 vcore @ 4.2ghz to be stable =P)
MB: Rampage IV Extreme
CPU: Intel Core i7 3930k (Cooled by Corsair H80)
RAM: 32GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 (9-9-9-24)
GPU: 3 * Zotac GTX 580 AMP! Edition SLI

Any updates on your tests?
BIOS running good - but out of 10 standbys I still get one failed standby....
No Atlas I am not making any constructive progress.
I am sorry. Does not mean I will leave this problem. Just that I have not succeeded with it yet.
just joined this forum because im experimenting a similar problem with my 3570k + Saber-tooth Z77 and Samsung 30nm ram. Because of a failed overclock, i can no longer overclock my chip anymore because if i enter anything higher than 34 into the multiplier*? (not sure what its called but not the base clock) it automatically replaces anything i enter that is over 34 default as 34 as my highest multiplier. ive tried updating the bios with no luck, also tried resetting CMOS, and set default bios settings. Nothing helped. Hope someone can help me!
Ill try replacing the memory dimms tonight and see how it goes
On a side note: for some reason after my failed overclock i can no longer use the intagrated graphisc on my mobo, (plugging hdmi cable from monitor to mobo no longer works) the only way i can get video signal now is put in my video card and get the video feed from there. Mobo problem? CPU problem? software? i updated bios, cleared CMOS.

Thanks for the BIOS Shamino, superb. My OC's have all been stable with lower Vcores as well as lower VCCSA & VTT. I have an insane amount of RAM that I like to use (64gb@2400) which always makes it more difficult to get things tightened up.
The only problem I have been having is with my monitors coming out of sleep mode. They either come back on very slowly or occasionally not at all. Just wanted to let you know.....
