    Will be upgrading my gaming rig core after many years of waiting finally bit the bullet with some extra cash targeting 5.0 on all cores once I get everything installed and stable.
    I'll post some final shots in the Fractal R5, with the 1070 and H110i GTX I already have after cable managing.

    Up and running at stock, had to fight it for stability for a couple of hours, finally figured out it wanted a stupid amount of voltage 1.25v to stay stable at stock over auto (I assume because of the turbo likely).
    I upgraded to the latest bios and that helped substantially with the OC bot recommendation, ram XMP timings, and the overall ease of use (those with this board I recommend doing that first).
    Playing around with the CPU multiplier now and will run some benches after its stable.
    Here's what it used to look like with my Ivy Bridge so aiming for this clean or better:

    Here's the before work from initial base testing to make sure everything was working up to par.

    Additional note: was able to push to 5.0 on all cores stable with the same 1.25v originally required, I'll likely try dropping it down to see the minimum for it next.
