I can't seem to hit 3.9 Ghz, I've tried 1.425v but it's still unstable and don't want to push the voltage any higher. Am I doing something wrong here, or just bad luck in the silicon lottery?

what is your cooler?
I was unable to get to 4.0 with the stock cooler. I got a Gammaxx 400 and am running at 4.0 at 1.3375V while still cooler than the stock cooler at stock speeds. it may be the temps.

I'm running the stock cooler, and I've monitored the temps while running a stress test, the highest it's gotten is around 80c before crashing, so I don't think it's the temps.

those are high temps. I keep mine under 70 at all costs, and the new cooler allowed the overclock and under 68 when working on cinebench r20.
