When the useage drops back but FID and VID stays the same it's because the application is not working as hard. I've found this common with Linpack, whether OCCT's or Intel's.

The OCCT charts you posted is a cut back in useage, so that suggests to me it's not throttling.

Looks like the VID is being lowered and in CPU-Z I can see multiplier go to 7.
Throttling




Bios Settings





Case setup






The ambient outside temperature that is being drawn into the intake fans is currently -1C (30F)


Do I have anything glaring wrong with this setup?

Interesting, so what I see that is missing on this is you don't have any 6 pin connections powering your video card. So this brings an interesting variable into the mix. so you gpu gets its power from 3 places, the pcie slot, a 6 pin connection, and another 6 to 8 pin connection. your system may work but what I believe may be happening is when you try to load your cpu up, it does not have the available power due to the video card sucking the power off the board. does your psu have 2, 6pin pcie connections? if so plug them in and see if that makes a difference. the pcie slot can only supply so much power. let me know how it goes! thumb.gif

Holy cow, I didn't think that card would run without those being plugged in ( I have that exact card btw).

thats actually not possible he wouldn't get video i have a 9800gtx and when you dont plug in a 6pin it makes a high pitched squealing noise and doesnt show video he probably just didnt have them pluged in when he took the shot i actually believe all video cards make a noise when you don't plug in the 6pin at least every card iv owned does and the 9800gtx is actually duel 6pin

Correct when I took the pictures i didn't have the 2 x 6 pins plugged into the video card. I realized this when I went to put the lid back on the case and fixed it afterwards. I also have the extra power cables plugged in just above the VRM.

I gotcha, I was going based off of the photos. Have you looked into if others are having the same issue with your mobo or psu?

I found someone else who had the m5a99x and upgraded to the sabertooth. I've been in PMs with him and he basically said he experienced the exact same issues I am having when he tried to go above 4500mhz on the m5a99x. he said the power delivery was just not efficient enough to accomplish it and he got the same kind of throttling and also experienced hard lockups around the same voltage I am experiencing these lockups. Unless we can confirm there are multiple people running the m5a99x evo r2.0 setup @ 4800 or above and are prime stable, I'm going to go ahead and give up on being prime stable until I decide I want to buy a better board.
