kinda strange to see only 1 core temp drop don't you think?
1 thing i did that i saw a pretty decent temp drop was took apart my R5770 Hawk. removed stock TIM and applied MX-3, then installed some Enzotech BCC9's and my idle temps went from 34 to 30. not bad for a 5 min job..

to my ramblings
understanding, large fft's which i passed run from 128k to 1024k. blend runs from 8k all the way to 4096k. so it's pushing the system further in the same direction.. possibly making it fault for that reason. when i pushed the mch core from 1.34 to 1.36 it passed large fft's. maybe that wasn't enough. i'll try blending at 1.38v and hope it works/better.
as you can guess changing the static t-read back to 9 didn't prove anything.
