If the CPU temp ever touched 80C then it would turn off the whole computer. So I didnt go above 1.2v, mostly was run at 1.2v 4.3GHZ on the CPU and cache, cache voltage similar.
Kingston 1600 1.65v, hyperX? blue anyway. All my ram is 1.65v, I know intel recommends 1.5v, but thats like saying they need 1333mhz (stock) memory only, to me anyway
That's weird, it shouldn't turn off until core temps hit 105C, and 80 should be fine. Unless that's a "case" temperature? If it was it would make sense (and be very high). 1.2 V should be fine, so not sure why it would have degraded that much unless it was running really hot or the motherboard was doing something weird.
Also strange. It should have run correctly. Maybe there's something else strange going on, possibly to do with both?
