If i could control the heat a bit better I could probably hit 4.7 stable. I can get it to boot but I get bluescreens if I do anything cpu intensive. PCIE Freq at 102 allows bclk over 220
HT Off! I tried briefly to get HT stable at 4.2GHz but it seemed no matter the voltage it just didn't want to go. My board wont boot over 221MHz, but it looks like it can't get stable over 215 or so. I will try the PCI-E trick, do you think that will work? Everyone else with a Classified is getting 230+ bclk, and I am stuck at sub 215.
I am pretty sure my water temp is "room temp" before it goes back into the CPU block, because if I use my fingers to stop 1 of my 3 fans on my radiator, my temps don't go up at all. So basically just 2 fans on my Radiator is all I need apparently lol. When I mounted my block, I did a Kuntz Certified mount, which means using LOTS of paste, paste everywhere, like half a tube of paste, and then using maximum pressure to bolt it down. My 4 bolts are as tight as my hands/fingers can turn them, far beyond what most people would dare do I bet. I tightened each one a full turn, in a clockwise pattern, until they were all fully tight. When you do a full-paste mount, it'll take a few weeks of use/thermal cycling to get your temps down.
