Here's a quick update on my 9560. I complained to Dell about high temps on one core, and they sent me a new motherboard and cooling. Temperatures dropped like 20 centigrades under load. Now running with - 145 mV on CPU and i - 180 mV on iGPU. Probably got a better pasting job.
No longer any throttling issues from the CPU. Temps around 69 under heavy load.
Using Afterburner for OC on the GPU for now, even though Cakewalk tried to talk me out of it., I have seen freaky numbers on the GPU bus, like 12362472724 and such, but that must be just a software/measuring bug?
Anyway, I seemed to reach some kind of wall with voltages and power limit with core at +150 and mem at + 200. Weirdly no high GPU temps, but Afterburner monitor shows power and voltage limits all over the place. Running at core +205 and mem +407 now. Stable for for benchmarking and gaming, but the firestrike score is only like 50 more than with the previous mentioned. Could it be that the power limitations makes this overclock not working? Strange that it doesn't crash or get hot at all. Never reached 78 C on the GPU and I can't see any throttling as I did when the prevoius CPU heated everything to 90 C.
Here's the latest Firestrike score:
