I'm close to stable at 4.3 so I'm trying small bumps to see if I can get there without too much heat or I'll call 4.2 the "max." Stock cooling.
I wasn't getting 4.3GHz stable so I broke down and picked up a second one and this one is doing better. I'm currently benching it at 4.5GHz at 1.30 vcore (as a few lower ones failed). It was able to pass a one loop benchmark at 4.4 and 1.27 so I kept pushing higher. Temps are lower too. This one at 4.5Ghz and 1.30 vcore is currently 81*C .
Interestingly enough, they changed the fan design between my two chips. I was going to reuse the old one but the new one has more cooling area. New one on the left, old on the right. Notice the cooling fins split at the end.Edited by Aziraphale05 - 8/29/14 at 2:14pm
