Mess with your nb termi and gtl ref voltages, it should not need near that much for 3.99ghz. 1.5v is too much for a 45nm chip, I run only 1.38v for 24/7 use and that is with a TRUE120 with 2 thick delta 120s(the tri-blade 142cfm beasts) in a push-pull setup...the temps are not what will kill the chips, it is the voltage.
Check out some of the online guides for safe values before changing anything else, since many mobo components are not as tolerant of overvolting as CPUs are and even a few minutes of too much voltage on a sensitive part can kill a chip or board.

Wow, puck just kinda summed that one up for most of us lol. I agree with puck.
Man Puck... I couldn't have said it better myself!
