Unexpected overclocking results
Hey everyone, new to the forum. Just completed my new build with a 2950x on Asus x399 and custom loop. After up and running for a week with stock bios settings, I started in on overclocking. With factory settings, my cpu temps ran around 28-57 degrees from idle to loaded with prime95. I loaded the 4GHZ asus profile and the first thing I noticed was a big drop in temps (3-27 degrees). Then I proceeded to up the multiple to 42x and even bumped the core voltage to 1.43 to see if I can get it stable, and temps still stayed low (<30).
Test scores from factory to overclocked: Realbench (146,864 --> 165,135), Cinebench (3203 --> 3565). So it nets out to 12% bump with lower temps? What is Asus doing with all of those auto settings that creates higher heat and less performance. I am missing something?
