nevermind, pc is not stable past 4217.00 mhz
I have water cooling its just that my processor doesn't want to be stable over 4.2ghzI' am kind of curious if you people are so into overclocking why not cut to the chase and watercool? HST are half ass cooling in comparision and worrying about using a certain thermal paste...and you can use the pump, res, fittings and rads later on.... at most you might have to buy a new block/blocks or back plates to adapt to a new chipset...your present idle temp would then be at worst your max load temp and you wouldn't have to disable things (HTT) that IMO defeat the purpose of ocing to get better performance.
My 2 cents.
check your vdroop settings, you probably had it off before.why does my processor take 1.45 volts when it took 1.33 volts before?
Not necessarily true. Higher voltage increases electromigration affects on the copper interconnect of the processor's circuitry and will eventually lead to premature failure.Haha, yeah so long as the temperatures are fine should be ok for a few years
What about QPI and ICH voltages etcetc
