Alright so for the h80i these temps are normal? (just clarifying)

Depends on the voltage, but yes, they are in the ballpark.

Yeah just got back from the gym... test is still running and temps have stayed constnt (actually gone down to 67 the hottest core and 64 the coolest one) The voltage is the standard one it started without as I did not change it... cpuz says its 1.184

I'd put the BCLK back to 100 (no sense stressing the PCIe link and all the other stuff that uses that freq) and then offset that by bumping the multiplier to 43. You've got some voltage and temp headroom if you wanted to push towards 4.4 or 4.5.

Yes I'd definetly like to push to 4.5, what should I set these stuff to? And the volt?

EDIT: Just did what you told me, the computer is now at 4.3GHz(offset mode, voltages still not messed with)
But something strange happened, I did the windows experience index again, temps were more or less the same when indexing, but the results were odd...

The cpu is now a 7.8 (yay!) but the ram went up too... the ram is now 7.8, and I don' tthink did anything to affect it. Wth?

Shouldn't be too hard to get to 4.5 All you really need to change is the multiplier, as you already have, and the voltage. You might have to change the LLC setting later, but for now I would just take the voltage from offset to manual, set a manual voltage of 1.275V or 1.3V and a multiplier of 45 and then stress test it. That's probably more voltage than you need (1.25 might be enough) but it's a starting point. If you notice big drops between the idle and load voltage (say it is 1.275 at idle but only 1.25 at load) then you can change the LLC from Auto to Medium or High and that should keep the load voltage closer to the idle voltage.

Or, if you don't want to mess with fixed voltage, leave it on offset and change the Auto to something like +0.01 and then see what voltage that gives you at 4.5. The final voltage is the VID (which changes based on the speed) and the offset you specify (where Auto is just letting the motherboard pick the value) so try to set an offset that gets you around 1.25 or 1.275 under load.

Ok I'm reading this and realizing that turning offset off might be better after all. Do you think this will affect temperatures/longevity by much? (I'm looking towards 1.5-2 year life cycle before upgrading mobo/cpu

Just turn offset off until you get a good overclock. Then once you know the speed and voltage, it is easy to go back in and change back over to offset. Takes a few variables out of the initial stability-finding equation.
