His mobo is 8.1phase it,s the V Evo the M Evo is 4.1

I just yesterday upgraded to the V my temps went up 7 degrees at idle t0 37c reseated cooler three times same result...Also system took 7 seconds longer to restart from 31 to 38. I have just taken the Evo V out and put the Evo M back in! Back to 30c idle and 31 second restart. Evo V is going on fleabay later!
