You think I can hit 5 with air cooling alone? I think the thermal paste was poorly applied. Plan on re doing it. Using a Coolermaster Hyper 212 cooler.

Lowered the voltage, as well as the clock speed, and used the older version of Prime without the AVX. Now running sub 80C at 4.8GHz at 1.21 volts.
