It was weird one time I tested 4.5 and got 93 as my highest temp, then redid it and got 85 max as highest temp...
But I did test 4.4 three times (reloading the bios and changing three times) and got 85 on one test and 90 on the other 2
My comp build is a few days old, havent played any intensive game for hours yet, I've heard thermal paste needs time to activate to its peak preformance... so should I expect that?
Ive read the Noctura keeps the cpu 6-8C cooler than the Evo, but at these ranges, would it be worth it in the future.
Also is there anything that looks weird or wrong? Ive heard there should be a sweet spot.
ALSOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! should I have the turbo oc or the base clock oc.. or both?
ok what i recommend you do is keep it at stock voltage, dont use turbo boost at all, its junk, put the voltage at offset +5 load line calibration at 50% or level 2 or level 3, turn off spread spectrum and follow a guide to find the other recommended settings, theres a good one on overclock.net ivy bridge normally runs hot and i recommened against anything above 85C you really dont need above 4ghz you wont notice it unless you're programming or doing some intense computing and playing games wont do that
