Hi all

New here and recently built a new system using the Asus Prime and a 2950X. I've been experimenting with Precision Boost Overdrive and wondered if anyone has done the same and what settings they have used to extract the most out of the CPU on this board?

I'm using a Deepcool Castle 240RGB AIO and the default PBO settings keep max temps to 68c under heavy load (throttles down to around 3.7GHz, depending on ambient temps). Is it "ok" to push these CPUs beyond that temp, or should I avoid? This is my main workstation, so don't want to stress it too much, but a bit of extra horsepower when rendering 3D scenes/animations would definitely help.

Thanks in advance
