My System Specs

Default

Got it installed this morning and was initially overjoyed at Core Temps, but then I noticed CPU-Z was reporting lower Core Voltage than my GameXstream did (after Vdroop). Quick prime test showed that the system was indeed unstable, so I suspect the Corsair unit is providing lower volts.

Not a big deal.... took an extra .02V in bios to bring it back up to where it was before and everything seems to be good to go,

It does make me wonder though what my actual delivered V were with the gameXstream, and how much the VRM on the motherboard was working to compensate.
