Hey guys i would like to ask why does sometimes my core #3 in core temp has only 50 percent load? Im running P95 large fft. I overclock it by 4009 mhz. I think after 30 mins of running p95 core #3 will down its load to 50%? Is my temp good for stability? Im just aiming for 4 GHz on air coolers. Thanks

pick up your pcie frequency a little to improve stability...and you can try picking up the cpu vtt voltage a little to see improvement in stability...and stress test the cpu using intel burn test...set the threads to 8 and ram whatever you want to and test...
76 on load is starting to push it a definitely don't want to go over 85...or at least I wouldn't...but 76 will not kill your chip or anything, so on air that's ok I'd say...
