Prime 95 27.7 build 2 as of May about the 15/12 runs avx instruction set now methinks
even my 2500k runs tad warmer under this newer build.
But my son mentioned his 2011 chip gets warm with new Prime 95 on high o'clocks

I'm surprised at how high your voltages are guys, no wonder temps are highs. I'm running mine at 1.010v @ 4ghz, you would need about 1.075v for 4.4ghz and 1.175 for 4.6ghz. Did you guys really bother to tweak to the lowest stable voltage?

That is so high for your oc. Where is your LLC? lower it, and then try.

i found out it was kind of high because after 4.5ghz, it takes A LOT more voltage to stabilize my chip
i wanted 4.8ghz, but i'll stick with 4.5ghz for now.

i'm at 75% llc, 1.272vcore and its 100% stable, i'll tweak it later to get the voltage down a bit
and apparently even up at 1.36 my 4.6 wasn't stable, it could pass the aida64, but it crashes during games and intel burn test <- instantly lol

magnetic just has a golden chip.
at 1.175 i can only get up to 4.3

pop the heat spreader off and apply some good thermal paste, should bring down temps 10c. lol
