Is there some special reason you went with MSI? Board given to you?

It seems that the Eclipse motherboard (or at least mine) is a bit too ready to cut voltages while your overclocking. I've noticed mine try to suddenly drop the power from 1.25 volts to 1.0 at 3.2Ghz under full load and it does similar with QPI ans Memory voltages. As you can imagine it usually causes either a lock-up or reboot when it starts dropping the voltages.
