I will look into deliding, coming from a broken pc to something working gonna give it a little time to run before I mess with something like that tongue.gif Really don't know much about deliding, will have to read up.

970 = 6 cores 12 threads

Yeah I wouldn't worry about it just yet its one of those itch many people get, it is risky and voids warranty. Pretty much what it is basically after Sandy Bridge (i7 2600K/i5 2500K etc...) they stopped soldering the die on to the ihs. Previously they were and made good contact, when Ivy Bridge (i7 3770K/i5 3570K etc...) came out people noticed an increase in temps, same goes for Haswell (i7 4770K/i5 4670K etc...) also the fact that Haswell has onboard vrms could contribute. Some mentioned that the paste was crap that they put in between while others say its the glue that they used to put the pcb onto the ihs which gave it a bit of a gap, causing unwanted heat. Long story short me and my bro tested it out with his brandnew day 0 4770K lol... we ripped it right off, cleaned off all the black rubbery feeling glue and cleaned the rest off the thermal paste, we applied CLU (Coollaboratory Liquid) and then we mounted it back. Before all this we tested the stock 4770K on an Asus Impact, stress tested and got high temps. Fast forward we tested after the delid and we got noticeably 15-20C difference which amazed me as I didn't think it would be that drastic. Me personally I think it was the black rubbery feeling glue that gave it a bit of a gap.

So overall I wouldn't worry about it just yet, let it sink in enjoy it and later on as a future project or if you like the risk/performance gain then its something to look at thumb.gif

Temps are fine and an occasional 90degree spike isn't also ok under 1,27
Maybe you can go a little bit lower on the vCore. Have to do some try and error.
Also I would recommend running occt or x264 for a bit longer. Like 4-6 hours. My system sometimes crashes after 4-6h.
But for normal use the system should be stable after it passed 1h occt

So I changed my vcore to 1.24 and ratio to 44 and now after 12 hrs in OCCT temps peak @ 74degrees. which is much more liveable to me tongue.gif
I seriously doubt I will see any difference between 4.4ghz and 4.5ghz

I think so, too. And 74°C is a good peaktemp under OCCT for a 24h OC imo.

You can play around with the cache clock if you want to optimize the OC but that may result in the need of a higher Vcore.

Have fun with your build!
