i7 2600k @ 4.5
Phanteks air cooler (basically the NH-D14 but better looking)
IC Diamond thermal compound
First off, I hate the UEFI bios on this board. My last PC had a Q6600 on a P5Q Pro board and I found that much simpler to OC. Anyway after running prime95 for a little while, I noticed my temps peak at 64 68 69 68 and my voltage hit about 1.39 and I could be wrong but this just seems a bit high.
Am I wrong, or is that a normal temp? If it's high, any suggestions for what's wrong? Voltage too high? (and how would I lower it in this BIOS?) I applied the ICD improperly? Something's wrong with my fans? I heard 0 difference in fan speed at load and idle, and don't have manual control, so I'm thinking this.
They're actually good to quite a bit more, I just assumed that buying one of the best air coolers out there would keep my temps a bit lower than they are. Even running stock speed at load seemed a bit high, though I don't remember the exact temps. I'm thinking maybe the ICD, maybe voltage, maybe I'm entirely wrong and these temps are perfect. I know the case and it's airflow affect it too, and even though I'm using a Prodigy, it has a 230 up front so it should have more than enough airflow.
And yes, old bios were nicer, this thing is highly unintuitive, IMHO.
