I think I'm a n00bish ocer.
Or maybe my HSF is badly seated. I don't think it should be in the 70's at complete stock.
I'll set my vcore to what yours is and mess with that then.
Before I do this I'll set my system to complete stock and compare benchmarks with you. =D
-are sure your HSF is seated correctly?
-how much thermal paste did you use?
(look here for more info on aplication of thermal paste http://www.overclock.net/intel-air-c...el-rice-4.html)
-what is your ambient temp?
-do you have good airflow inside your case?
i know asking this can make one feel like a noob, but things are easily forgotten.
