I will certainly try that program IBT. Even if it crashes in IBT at least its stable enough for gaming @ 5Ghz and in itself is phenomenal for a 970 i7. Honestly after 4.7 Ghz there is not much of a difference in min fps in gaming and its not worth the extra heat and voltage. I only need 1.45v or so for 4.7Ghz but for every 100 mhz after that you have to increase voltage A LOT. For 5 Ghz to run cool under 80c on prime 95 I have to keep my radiator in the ac vent cooled very well. For gaming @ 5Ghz it doesnt get too hot you could easily skip the AC cooling. Its the cpu stress tests like p95 etc that really generate a ton of heat at that speed and voltage. I will try and report back my results for IBT when I can get the AC running again full load. I am defintely looking forward to possibly upgrading to the 3960x and overclocking that to see if GTA4 min fps on max settings will improve. Such terrible poorly coded games like these love cpu and gpu power.
