What do you have for ram, how much and speed. I noticed you have the CPU_NB voltage on auto and it may not be giving enough.

So should I mount my radiator on top instead? I won't be able to do a push-pull configuration when on top

You could always put the pull fan on the outside of the case with a grill over it, to free up some room inside.

Also, update on my memory issue:



I found under tools in UEFI, it gives the SPD info, a JEDEC and a XMP. I find it weird that UEFI can show me the XMP profiles but it will not load it, must be a licensing thing. I also noticed that even though ASUS documentation says it loads the SPD by default, my system settings were definitely not doing that, I was getting CAS 11 timings, and that isn't in any of the profiles.

When I looked at the SPD it gave me the familiar abbreviations, tRAS, tRC ect, but in the DRAM timing settings, they were spelled out, and I couldn't find a pattern to decode it, and didn't feel like looking each one up, so I used DOCP, selected the only timing profile available, which was listed as 1600, but was actually 1333, reset the bios, it carried over the timings, loaded my saved profile, and then manually copied the timings on the left side into the right, and bumped it to 1600Mhz, and voila back to stable.



10 passes of IBT stable anyway, it spiked to 73c for a fraction of a second, but flirts around 68c on what CPUID HWMonitor reports as CPU (socket I am pretty sure) and 59c on the Package, so it looks like unless I do a back of socket fan I am done at 4.6Ghz.

That's a good clock for that board, you won't get much more from it. I have the same board .
