Just got the system built, 3820 x79 sabertooth, windows 8 64-bit, hyperx 1600mhz ram 16gb, 680 gtx 4gb, 850watt psu, 128gb ssd, 1tb HD WD black. First time I turned on the system I just shut off the Under clocking, where it turns down your processor's speed for less power usage. Then I continued to install windows 8 on to my system. After windows 8 was done I installed the Asus software and checked my four cores MHz, just to see what they were currently running on. To my surprise is was at 4677 MHz, I freaked out alittle because I've never touched any of the overclocking settings, so I ran some intelburn tests just to see if it was stable and it passes the tests. I'm just curious if anyone has ever had this happen before on this motherboard? Or any advice into making sure nothing is set to high. Current vcore is set at 1.38 and Temps don't go higher than 40C while gaming on intelburn it jumped to 53C during a 10 series test. Vcore temp also jumped to around 50C. Thanks for any advice.
