Have you tried lowing the voltage at all? mc_conor October 20, 2011 1:52:28 PM Yea spent about a week testing this is the lowest i can go to without a manual voltage; which i do not want as i like the speed step technology. Do you think i should reduce my OC as the temps are too hot? I won't be folding or anything I'll just be playing games and working on it.
