Nothing like it would be problem with stock clocks/mild overclock, but it's fixable with delidding. I settled to mild 4.6GHz overclock with my 7700k as I didn't see huge improvement like I saw with sandy bridge overclocking.

Yeah i was thinking 8700k or a Ryzen7 2700x

1di9 Hi everybody
I'm using my P8Z68-V motherboard and Core i5 [email protected],4Ghz cooled with a Scythe Zipang equipped with a Noctua 140mm fanrunning at 800-900 rpm. On full load with Prime95 (in place large FFTs) temperature is between 71-73° and Vcore is 1,322 - 324 V.
Is temperature too high? I need to work on CPU voltage tryng to keep it low?

d3v0 Gotcha. Well, at least I will swap them so that my 1080 runs cooler. I have an intake on the bottom and my 970 runs alot cooler than the 1080ti at the moment.

I am, however, able to use the GTX 1080ti in the bottom slot and move the GTX 970 to the top, though, and use the 1080ti (at 8x) for gaming?
I don't think the use of the cards dictates how many PCI-E lanes are available to them - or how many can be. I think that's where the confusion is coming from.

Going to have to remove that GTX 970, since the x8 3.0 will bottleneck my GTX 1080ti for sure.

The motherboard doesn't know anything other than "the video cards are being used". It's not going to go, "Oh hey, the video cards are being used for mining. Well, that's different! I'll give x16/x16 then."
