To push further, or not to push further, that is the question. - Page 2

Well, problem is... I'm @ 4.5ghz, 1.26v, and over 8 hours of Blend the max recorded temp was 70c. I don't know how much farther I can get from 4.5ghz with a 5c limit.

You sure your waterblock is seated right? I think a H70 should be able to cool much better than that. How do you have it configured?

Positive it's seated right, and I'm not sure since this is my first time being Intel. I disabled something in the BIOS controlling my fan speed, and I read that downloading Speed Fan can max out your fans, which I should probably do?

It just seems rather high for that voltage to me. I get better temps on air and the H70 is a pretty serious cooler.

Perhaps your fan isn't running at full speed. Try running a 3-pin fan --> molex connector to ensure it really is running at full speed. I'm probably not the guy to ask though, lol.
