Solders 18 running 4.2 slightly unstable now. Temps are 30c under load after a few hours the temps reach 38c but yeah I am sure after that some mods would be implemented on the case itself. Right now I am still wet and soaking up the knowledge without burning the chip. I hear the 8350 does good on this board. This one I am trying to finish this one for the wife. I had always bought oem pc but that is now the past lol.
Congrats are in order then, you won the chip lottery and got a good one. i was hitting about 52 at 4 with an H100 in pull. which board are you running? i am running an 8350 now in a saber and it is thoroughly enjoying it, have it set to 4.6 for 24/7
You can make the socket temp even lower by blowing a fan at the back of the motherboard. So how is that accurate?
Because Core Tempature is done by Software, not Hardware, Last time I heard on OCN, there's no physical core tempature diode on the CPU.
Realistically, no one would stick a fan behind the motherboard (where the socket is located) to reduce the temp around the Socket Diode, whilst not affecting the CPU tempature, which would give an unreal value.
