    Asus X99A, using the AI auto tuner in the BIOS, it gets 4.1 stable at 1.34.

    Zalman NPS 9900 Max cooler, getting 42C under load.

    What are some safe voltages and temps for air cooling?

    I was running 4.3 at 1.37, but I think a sensor spazzed out and was reading 102c, so I quickly shut down and went back to 4.1.

    Good chip? Hit 4.38, 1.45v on air, around 36c idle.

    I hit 4.4 at 1.37v with Uncore at 3.6 1.250v
    Thats under a H100iv2 though. Temps hit load 77C with AVX2 (offset minus 3 for 4.1GHZ) and normal load is 60C max.
