Temps too... i know my cooler isnt the best, but is there a way of lowering the temps with adjusting some settings for example decreasing vcore but compensating it with something else?
Anyway can I please join Your club?
Congrats with your excellent choice of both motherboard and CPU for your build !
Mine is the same. 4.5GHz requires ~1.368v Vcore for Prime95 Blend Custom '6000MB' to be 12 hours + stable. And I also have the CM Hyper 212+. My testing has showed that mine will probably need ~1.47v + for 4.8GHz 12 hours + Blend stability. So not worth it for me.
Thing is, CPU's vary alot. Either you get a very bad one a mediocre or a great overclocker. Mine is mediocre at best, but I just accept it. 4.5GHz is really good enough for me. Since these are blazing fast CPU's, even at stock !
And Welcome to the Club !
