Alright i did some testing with Crysis 3 real quick, i get 86C max without it downclocking, if i set the temperature target to 80C it will downclock from 1137 to 1071 about 100mhz down kinda annoying, and that's at a 70% fan speed, i don't want it any higher honestly because it's very noisy. I could of course just live with lower clocks i just don't see why it does it.
My ambient temperatures is around 25-27C, i don't know exactly because i don't have a thermostat, it's kinda hot but nothing extreme honestly. I have tried lowering the voltages but of course that also lowers the core clock, and if i raise the clock and lower the voltage it's the same issue still as hot.
The funny thing is some games like really undemanding The Walking Dead is hotter than Crysis haha it's hilarious at 88C over 86C in Crysis. Oh well i guess the clocks doesn't do a huuge amount of improvement in terms of FPS in games anyway so i will probably just cut the clocks and temp target to a minimum, and for benchmarks i can always just put it too the limit since it doesn't matter there.
