wow linpack is good scaring me alittle with the temps but my temp in my bay is reading 45 c but on linpack was like 65 c core temp 80 c socket temp it ran but i cut it short I should probably lower voltage it didnt fail on me and ran for 5 min

If you have an extra fan, take off the side panel to expose the socket backplate, and aim the fan at the backplate. That should lower your CPU temp and to some degree, your CPU core temps. Your temps are pretty high for those voltages though. If you've already reseated the cooler, I don't know what else to say other than maybe your chip is just really leaky.

I hate to say this to you guys, but I got a 8120 clocked to 5.7 GHz with liquid cooling at 45C with delta fans doing push pull on the kuhler 620 I have. I have messed with the voltage just a tad bit to get the extra juice to it. I haven't tested it on prime because I was just seeing how high I can get it without it crashing on me. I plan on getting a 8350 or the 9000 series CPU and clock it as high as I can get. I have seen some threads saying the 8120 sucks but I actually can say this is the best CPU I have had in a long time. I'll post more about my PC in a thread later.

Oh forgot to say I have 2 120 phantom fans pushing along with a 200 top fan to deliver more air for the over clock. So airflow is not an issue for me
