Same VID as mine, I can't get stable at that vcore at all, mine fails after ~10 minutes, what do you set it to in the bios to get 1.272 in Windows?, what is your batch number? Some batches oc better than others and some need less vcore, luck of the draw unless you can cherry pick the batch number (that's the reason for the table below, to find the best ocing batch number) Here's some results from another forum I frequent, my E3110 is the one at 3600MHz. (Click the thumbnails to go direct to the full size pic)



Also here's the screen dump I submitted for my listing in the above pic.



Regarding pictures, here's how you do it, although your original URL worked I resized it and rehosted the pic for you as your original was too big to comfortably fit on a forum page, you used the hyperlink function as opposed to the insert picture function.
