Ah I spoke too soon
I just started to notice some stability issues a few days ago and put it down to overheating 95*c+. I was at -70*c
I delidded it and used the xpc raystorm TIM stuff that kept me under 80*c mid day 25*c+ ambient temps
Then I realized I got some major degradation going on I can now get 4.3 Ghz lol was at 4.8.
I got some leading benches in valley and 3dmark11 but at the cost of my chip
I some how fluked stability test in 1707 but after further testing after my post I realized I have fried my chip
