  1. umm...no one?
  2. Hi there!

    First up, when you say you are stress testing, what are you using to do it with and for how long in total? If you are using IntelBurn Test and getting those temps I'd say you are pretty pretty darn well :)
  3. i used both aid64 extreme and prime95 seperately and monitored voltage with cpuid cpu z. they both gave the same temps result and voltage core and for like 10mins

    My advice would be to run Intel Burn Test on very high for the full ten runs and perhaps let Prime95 run for an hour or two. If both of those come back clean then I'd say yes, you are good and stable. Judging by your temps though it seems to be doing fairly well so far :)

    You are correct. I was able to rn battlefield 4 with max settings and played about 3 hours so the highest temp recorded was 56c
  6. Fantastic, I'm glad it's working out well :)
