the new BIOS update is giving me instability issues with my old OC settings, should i continue increasing vcore and cpu/nb voltage to stabilize the system or go back to old BIOS version? The new vcore CPU/NB voltages seems a little too high to me but I don't know if this is normal. Example:
Before the new BIOS update when it was 24/7 OC stable: 
vcore offset voltage was 1.225v + 0.143750 and CPU/NB offset voltage was 1.125 + 0.243750
now after the new BIOS update it's relatively unstable:
vcore offset voltage is 1.415v + 0.193750 and CPU/NB offset voltage is 1.406 + 0.281250.

If I was running stable @ 4.2GHz with 1.225V,.. I would go back to old version,.. and keep my vcore and cpu/nb voltages as low as I can.


your M5A88-V EVO is not a great overclocking board,..the M5A97 EVO is a bit more forgiving,.. but 4.2GHz is a nice overclock @ 1.225V.
