Looks like you've got your LLC set to Very high or extreme.
Knock it down to High and compensate with added Vcore in bios, this should bring down the temp of the socket a little bit if it is bothering you.
it is still within Safe parameters. Core temps are a touch high but i'm more inclined to think those are momentary spikes just long enough to be registered.
knocking your LLC down a notch may slightly lower you core temps.
I tried keeping my LLC on high but the VDROOP is pretty dire, it drops too much for it to be useful for me, I am aware that the socket temp is highlighted, yes. I can tell the difference between the two, thanks.
Vboost adds heat. That "dire" vdroop eliminates the voltage surge that the LLC circuit produces. The voltage surge is what causes the temp spikes.
ever wonder why CCSorkin has said that his MSI board is 10*C cooler then his Asus board?
Disable Vcore monitoring in bios will allow you access a little more Vcore on that board. IIRC saberkittys can do 1.7v core.
in my experience you shouldn't need much more then 1.6v in bios to hit that same load voltage. If you are pushing these clocks, there is no reason why your cooling cannot handle the added voltage @ idle
food for thought.
My experience with this is about 150mhz of head room from very high to high LLC, based on my chips max overclocks for given LLC settings with my cooling.
Taken with a grain of sand OFC, but it is one Purdy grain of Sand.
I'm set to 1.575v in bios.
the bottom value, i'm not sure if the saber-kitty monitors. but this Vin0 value is closer to the actual test on board voltage on average using a DMM.Edited by FlailScHLAMP - 11/17/14 at 4:49pm
