Are you saying that your chip is Folding stable at 4.2 with only 1.33V Vcore, and that the max it hit was 32C, on a CNSP9500? Damn.

this is it at 4ghz, maybe my ambient temp is super low (hottest room in the house, right next to the case is a fireplace as well), but it doesn't run hot at all. Makes me eager to upgrade to liquid cooling as a later project to push the little bugger.
