I use CPUz/HWmonitor
to monitor whats going on with temps volts etc. Also use the Asus Aisuite tools as well. I run prime95 for at least ten-12 hours as often I have failures at the 8 hour and 10 mark before I consider the system stable.
What volts are you using?
Well done though. Its a good effort.
Thanks again for your information, I really like CPUID Monitor, It allows me to see each core's temperature. Each core shows around 26c average but then it shows my CPU temp at 41c I don't really understand that concept.
I really don't have that great of a picture of my case but to be honest I really like it. It does have a window on the side but it is not a full window. It shows enough for me to enjoy. The main reason I bought this case was simple, I lacked the knowledge of water cooling and this was my very first time seeing it in person let alone doing it myself. This case came assembled with water cooling accessories that made it much easier for me to figure it out and do the rest later on I will mess with the case but for now I am more focused on Overclocking and fine tuning my water cooling.
Here is a picture of my CPU voltage and information now.
P.S. I overclocked using the bios-, I got a good idea of what It should look like at first by overclocking using the ASUS AI suite software, after that I went into the bios seen what was changed read up on the individual options then reset to default and started customizing my own. Achieving much more than the software ever offered me. I actually accomplished a 4.7ghz and i am going to be running tests to see if that is a stable setting over night tonight.
