whats the actual vcore lol not the offset tongue.gif

if that is load temps using IBT or Prime95 those are good temps at 4.4 I would say every chip is different keep going until you get to 1.35v and are still under 80c at full load and you will be fine as you won't really see those temps in regular tasks and gaming.

Oh sorry it's 1.216V

run prime 95 for the night and see if you crash. if it's stable that a pretty good chip for that vcore and multi.

My computers not crashing but prime95 did and silver light crashed a few times when I was on Netflix. Does this mean I've got to up the voltage a bit?

Yes this means you aren't stable for some programs so moar vcore is needed.

Is that an asrock extreme4 mobo any chance? These mobos dont report correct cpu vcore so beware that your vcore can be higher than what your seeing in cpuz

I'm only changing the offset voltage, do I have to change additional voltage for the turbo as well?

yes add more total vcore as thats whats necessary as when you run program you aren't idling you are using the cpu. So moar volts. try .02 vcore upage

Surprisingly enough, I can get a stable 4.3 with 1.1V

Must have a good chip
