I'll try it when I get home, and post my results then!

So, I've gotten the voltages down a bit, but the temp is still a little high capping out around 58C under load, dropping to around 40C idle. Here's what I've got for voltages:

CPU: 1.45
CPU/NB: 1.25
CPU VDDA: 3.0
DRAM: 2.0
HT: 1.6
NB: 1.6
SB: 1.60325
VDDR: 1.40450
VDDPCIE: 1.11300

I've got my RAM clocked down to ~1400MHz down from 1600. I can't seem to be able to OC it any higher than 4GHz, though...

Anyone have any idea how I could OC higher, or even why my CPU runs so hot, even with a Corsair H70?

I woudlnt woryr about your temps, they arent crazy bad.

boost your CPU/NB more.. maybe 0.1V more, that's all I can suggest. make your your ram timings are NOT on auto, and set them HIGHER then what the manufacturer states. (for the time being)



it could be that you've just hit a wall with your motherboard/cpu

I don't think the Deneb chips usually do much more than 4Ghz and from what I understand some even have trouble getting that high. As for the H70, it is an advancement over the H50 but it is still in the same cooling class as the best air coolers. I used to run an H50 on my i7 860 but it ran into high to mid 70s under full load at 4.2Ghz, which is no better than my Noctua. I have it under a full water loop now and it doesn't even crack 60C. I think you are probably right about normal with those temps at those clocks for the H70. Don't know if you already do but you can gain a couple of degrees by setting it up in push/pull or if that is standard on the H70.

LarkStarr, I'll give that a shot. All my timings for my RAM are manually set to manufacturers settings, so I'll give that a try as well.

I'm running a Crosshair IV Formula, so I don't think the board is the issue. I've scene this board and CPU running much higher than this, though I suppose there's nothing saying it's actually stable.
