Hello, I'm pretty much a beginner when it comes to overclocking. I've been following this guide http://www.overclock.net/t/1348623/amd-bulldozer-and-piledriver-overclocking-guide-asus-motherboard to get started. Currently I'm running 4.2ghz @ 1.325v. I'm using a Hyper 212+ Evo for CPU cooler. For some reason I seem to be getting very high temperatures when stress testing. OCCT will abort once temps get past 65C, running prime95 the CPU temp went over 70C! Why is my system running so hot when I have a good CPU cooler and only a moderate OC?
