I fear anything higher is going to run me well into the mid even high 70s

"stock" volt is always too much voltage. work on getting the best clock for the juice and those temps will go down -- unless you OC more. tongue.gif

I noticed that Vcore in BIOS was set on Auto and in CPU-Z my voltage was at 1.320v. I set it at 1.25. I now noticed my idle temps have dropped from 44-48 down to 34-36

That board should be able to handle it. I've been running my 2500k at 4.5 @ 1.3 volts for the past forever. I run LLC at level 5 and offset voltage. I can't remember why, I but I remember that was best after a lot of research back in the day.

 

As for cooling, I guess I finally did a good tim job on the last install. I have a coolermaster v8 and it will keep mine under 70C in IBT. Once you get that new cooler, I'd aim for at least 4.5

 

Good luck.

I am noticing a huge difference in temps at MAX load going from 1.32 down to 1.25 max loads before were 68c and now they are 54c
