Forgot that people still use Windows 7.

LLC is to high, and I believe the voltage is set at the minimum it can handle.. I should try messing arround with the settings again I guess.
I have also increased some Digi+ settings to get stability, and lol to test the load voltage I ran IBT for like 10 sec and instantly got a message from AI suite telling me CPU is at 78°.. that's insane.
The ram is running at 2050 currently and it seems hard to change the settings and get stability without crippling the ram by making it run way less like 1800-1900.. but I could give it a try, nice tip.
I made my HT run high too : 2636 : because of higher performance my core voltage is currently at 1.488/1.5v (1.476 under load) on windows/CPU Z maybe I just have a bad chip that requires ton of Volts..
Go with a fan that has a decent amount of static pressure.
CFM says very little on restrictive space.
I had an Enermax fan behind the socket before, because it had a very good noise to cfm ratio.
But now I use a SP120, which isn't the best fan(prefer Cooler Master JetFlo), I have better temps. I don't mind the slight incease in noise. Just put the fan in PWM mode.
My chip also isn't the best... also need around 1.48v for 4.7ghz.
Beyond 4.6 is the voltage wall for me.
That's plain mad, 78c after just 10 seconds.
You sure your cooler is seated properly? You are using a NH-D14 right? Should be a decent cooler.
My ram is G.Skill TridentX 2400.
Currently have it running at 1866 c8. I find this to be the sweet spot of balance between ram and cpu speed. If I run 2133-2400 ram c9 I need to up my cpu voltage and cpu-nb voltage.
Not worth it IMO. The overal performance increase over 1866 c8 is slim to nothing.
Have both cpu-nb and ht @ 2400 atm.
Lets me set the cpu-nb voltage to 1.25v instead of 1.3v.
And yeah, I can expect my water cooling to be a lot better.
Would be a shame if it was just a few degrees cooler then your ~65 euro air cooler.
My complete loop costed me more then 500 euro. Do note that it does include a gpu(fullcover and proper backplate with extreme vrm pads).
Water cooling is an expensive hobby. But it is very nice, and quiet.

Or a good 120mm fan will do
Nooo... not the stock amd fan.

Had that on my side intake fan too... but it is way restrictive, decided to just put a simple filter and accept that I need to clean regularly.
Mine also lowered a great deal.
I also placed an Noctua 9cm to blow on the front of the vrm sink though.
Rear exhaust is an Corsair SP 120. Same as the fan behind the socket. Static pressure is the way to go behind the socket IMO.
