Well, like I said with the Antec Spot Fan I have it down now to 65-68 max on Prime 95, and idle of 35-40, so it sounds like I'm okay now.

Definitley way over, I have my FX-8120 OC'd to 4.5 Ghz on 1.4 Volts.

I turned my two rear fans around and the temps went way down on mine. I figure with all my fans facing in except for the top 200mm fan it will force all the hot air that way and it did

***Is anyone else with the Sabertooth and FX series running into this issue...I am having a hard time keeping the voltage the same on my CPU. It will change a little sometimes and it will cause my overclock to become unstable. For example in the bios I have to set the voltage to 1.40v in order to get it to run at 1.365 or so.

This is called Vdroop. You need to initiate your LLC to correct this. It will however result in the voltage being or close to being your number thus creating more heat if you enable it above the voltages you need to sustain your clocks.

Forgive my lack of knowledge but what does LLC stand for? I did try to look it up on google...but that was unsuccessful. Is it line load control?

Haha I was kind of close. I appreciate everyone's quick responses. This is a good forum and I enjoy belonging to it I'm trying to hit at least 4.8 ghz before I ask to be an official Sabertooth Club Member. The closest I have gotten is 4.615ghz. I'm looking for prime 95 stable clocks. Heat is the main issue.

That is massive volts for a low clock,you did start from scratch with your new OC right,not just your old settings?
