Yeah seems like that, just tested Prime95 45mins blend and my temps wont even go over 70c, seems that ITB hits alot harder.

I wouldnt use the overclocking utility, do your overclocking in bios
The first page stated to have power saving disabled
Everything else looks good. What do you have your C-states set at?

Yea, i knew that about the powersaving feature. I wanted for my system to be able to idle down to 1.6 and leaving this enabled seemed to allow that. Is there any harm in the settings I have? If not, I'm thinking I should leave it alone because it seems to working great.

What allows it to idle at 1.6ghz is having Speedstep and C1e enabled. The other C-states are what put the cpu into a deep sleep but this can cause instability so this is why these are disabled.

Well i dont think there is really any reason to. Your not going to save power when overclocking so there is really no point.

"Power Saving Mode: Disabled
~If this option is not shown then don't worry about it.
~No power saving when trying to overclock.
~This is a proprietary feature from ASRock and simply lowers your Vcore by 0.1v to "save power"."

Ive applied the thermal compound and reseated the cooler and still Im getting this high temperatures. What should I do or are these normal temps for this OC?

Your at a -0.05 offset but if you change to a 45 multi you will probably be at a +0.05 or higher. It doesnt seem too bad, ivy's know to run hot but obviously something was wrong w/ you heatsink because now your max is in the low 80's compared to the 90's before.

Ok, I'll give it a shot and see if anything changes.

Without it you won't get past the boot screen.
Thanks will try it and also lowering the PLL voltage itself. I can't do it now cause I'm spending the weekend at my gf's. But it'll be first thing I do once I get home! biggrin.gif

I'm running similar voltages to yours 1.248-1.264 under load (1.312 idle) / 1.832 pll @ 4.6, and during prime large-ftt's temps never come to 90 (more like 85'ish after 1-4 hours) under my CM EVO.

I've already resetted my noctua d14 using what the guide say... well to the best of my knowledge lol... cleaned the cpu with alcohool, same for the noctua, put some more thermal paste, put the noctua over ti to fit the 2 crew hole, tightened one 2 turn each side until it was tightened completly and i couldnt tight it more. Maybe it's too tight? lol

Maybe too much thermal paste. The thermal conductivity of the paste is lower than direct contact between the cpu and heatsink. If you put too much paste, you'll increase thermal resistance and end up transferring heat inefficiently. The less thermal paste you can get away with, the better.

Also, mounting the heatsink tight would help temps. If temps are still bad, try use less paste.

What's tyhe right amount of thermal paaste? a little pea? Man the cpu cooler is actually the hardest thing I've had to install lol. Just rreeinstalling it once scare m but now ... guess I have to do it again...
