My System Specs

Before water I hit 5.2ghz on air at 1.5v using a nh-d14 which would get up to 92c in 23c ambient. Coolant in my current system when stress testing for a day is 33c.
Ya, well the cure is the voltage/performance balance, or more fan speed. Also another rad would cure it, but cost quite a bit, I use 6 gentle typhoons 1850RPM on an externally mounted RX360 rad, and with 3 fans even at this speed, the temps would creep up with more then 1.35v, so I ended up with the cooling I wanted at the cost of a louder machine.
