Basically what Belial said, I always use Prime95 8k, 90% ram for about 10min for my temp tests. Will get Ultra in a couple days and retest.
2nd chip easier to delid because of more glue used by Intel, and that is what caused this chip to have such bad temps pre-delid compared to my first which was harder to delid.
Good work, don't go buying anymore chips now. I'll go tell your wife!

I think something is wrong with your 920. My 620 does better temps that that with more voltage.

At first, I paid for them and I called them up pertaining to my RMA order and the worker waived the cable fees... Not sure what happened but he was so nice.
Maybe because he thought I was a girl.
LOL...."Dude, it's a chick, she sounds hot! Send her some cables and some hawt newds!"

$25 for mushkins that aren't stable at their xmp profile of 2000 CL7 1.65v, but are at 1.7v or 1866 CL7 1.65v.... I still dont want to leave bad ebay feedback because that's still a great price for great ram (i mean i dont think they are broken or anything, and as for them possibly causing my bad overclocks, I tested g skill ares ram 2x4gb 1600 cl9 1.5v and the overclocks fail, dont boot, etc, at same settings).
Hmm, is it 4GB or 8GB? 1866 CL7 is pretty good. Just loosen the timings some, 2133 CL8 would still be great.
Also I deleted the first part of the post because it was lengthy (yours usually are, lol, not complaining, you just have a lot to say), but I wanted to comment: NEVER let your GF touch your gear!! (PC gear that is)
