CPU gets to TjMAX in a minute Turned off Intel Turbo Boost It runs better @3.1 but still close to 1.3 V draw Chip is 5 months old I got from a friend it still has guarantee More about : 2400 voltage run-dll September 17, 2012 4:54:01 PM Looks like it was caused by a setting called PLL overvoltage which was set to auto. disabling seems to have fixed the problem Can't find your answer ?
