Any idea at all? I'd greatly appreciate it.
My cpu cooler is a thermalright macho 120 rev A with a coolermaster sickleflow 120mm strapped on (its better than the stock fan)
Oh and its like 76F in my house i know that doesn't help but it still only hits 61c on auto prime95 for like 15 minutes
Temps going higher when you set everything up based on this guide is normal, things like LLC stress the VRMs higher and heat up the socket. I saw a similar increase in temps with my FX-8350 cooled by an Arctic A30, these chips run quite hot. This guide let me get up 4.5GHz without increasing voltages though.
Try putting a fan on the back of the socket. If you have a good fan it can give a noticeable difference in temps. You could try using the stock fan of your cooler. Attach it with cable ties or double sided tape on the cooler's backplate. Thermal paste can also make a difference. What are you using and how did you apply it? The credit card method isn't considered very good anymore, just put a rice grain in the centre of the CPU. Some good pastes are Gelid GC-Extreme and Arctic Silver 5, I use the slightly cheaper Arctic MX4 and that's pretty good as well. Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra is also considered good, but it's highly conductive, so if you get it on the motherboard it may cause a short, so be careful when applying.
As far as setting the BIOS goes, some people run CPU LLC on high rather than ultra, which will generate less heat, but increases vdroop, so you need slightly higher CPU voltage to keep it stable. Didn't work for me, but has worked for many others.
