Had the cpu only since I discovered the issue. PE was about the same so its probable the extra power draw of the gpu is causing this. Gonna bump it down to 4.8 as that keeps me within 55-60c but it gaming, it rarely goes as high as Prime95 so I may go w/ 4.9-5.0. I have a large enough loop that can handle four tahitis. It shouldn't be as bad as four 580s.
The PE card did work on the top slot via displayport so that rules out the mb causing the dp on the BE not working. Gonna rma the BE one.
One thing i did do different was not mess w/ the C states, bclk, and uncore ratio. The oc guides do suggest to disable and change these. This time, i went with what I could recall from my first settings. I wrote down those settings on a pad but the wife ripped that sheet out when she used it (damn).
Well, things look to back to normal. Going to run the whole thing one more time to make sure its good (3dmark13 is a better representation of temps for my needs vs the harsh IBT and Prime tests imho).
Got some fans in from the egg. Also, no cpu from amazon means i can use those funds for something else. Something I tried but didn't like w/ the 900D since it was bit too tight. I'm hoping the TH10 can make that possible with the extra space.
