Do I have a magic chip? I have my 3820 @ 4.6 and the Vcore is only at 1.266. I haven't seen anyone else with Vcore this low. Real Temp confirms I am sitting at 1.266V under 100% load.
Anyhoo, the H100 keeps my CPU under 57C on the hottest core, prime95in' the crap outta her. I am running 2 x Gelids and she is dead silent.
