Any settings I should change?
It also takes longer to boot into windows btw
That's a TON of heat for such a low CPU voltage (I'm assuming you're talking C not F). Do you have any intake fans that feed the radiator fans? Not sure how you wired up the cooler but if you have control over the fans either through software or the BIOS make sure they're on 100% during your testing, you can set them back to auto/smart after everything has been stress tested.
Multiple sources have stated i7's on the 1366 shouldn't exceed 75C, I never let mine get above 65... If you're trying to play this safe I would pull back the bclock to stock, increase the CPU mult incrementally until you hit instability, drop it back and then increase your bclock from there in the same method. I've done hour pulls at each step but I'm babying my chip and making sure I stay well within the safe zone of temp/voltage.Edited by runit3 - 9/16/13 at 7:04pm
