Increase the Vcore by bumping up your turbo voltage. I'd also put PLL Voltage back to Auto. No reason to mess with it at this point, at that speed.

DISREGARD BELOW: Turns out prime crashed once again after a few hours.

I actually messed around with some of the settings and im running prime 95 as we speak.

* Put my offset back to .015+ as opposed to 0.025+
* Bumped my turbo up to 0.023+ instead
* My peak temps while running p95 for the past four hours have been: 83c 90c 90 c84c

So far, everything seems to be running well. What do you guys think? Would putting PLL to auto increase temps
If all is well after p95 finishes, what would you guys recommend to lower temps? Thanks (:

So i just got back home from work to find that after bringing my PLL toauto, the program did not crash... but the problem now is that after the four hour mark, worker #2 had an error... what should my next step be? I dont know if I hsould simply boost the Turbo Voltage seeing as my peak temp was 91c in two of my cores... suggestions? :/

Maybe even lower LLC from level 3 (50%) to Level 2 (75%)? Or would that raise temps even more?

Raising the LLC (from 3 to 2 should be an increase, but with the dumb naming of some boards it is hard to be sure) would cause higher Vcore and so higher temps (but maybe higher stability). Since your temps are so high, I'd look at backing down one multiplier instead.

Are you sure the cooler is mounted well, and working at full speed? I'd expect better temps from that cooler.

I actually changed my turbo voltage to 0.027+ and I ran this custom p95 test for 1 hour: http://www.overclock.net/t/1198504/complete-overclocking-guide-sandy-bridge-ivy-bridge-asrock-edition#

My max temps were: 85 90 90 85, but they never went over.

And yes im sure it is mounted well, I re-seated it like 2 times, and it made no difference... i probably just have a ****ty chip haha. Gotta learn to live with it I guess.

Question though, do you think that with those temps I would be able to safely play games?... my temps dont get anywhere near those temps while I play :/

Yeah, 90C in Prime is fine. Like you said, you won't see anything within 20C of that in normal use.

Thanks (:

Yeah unless you get a better cooler I.e custom water you probably won't get drastic temp decrease. I wouldn't go above 85c while using prime but each to there own. Nice overclock enjoy :-)
