I'm curious if I might have messed up my cooler install or in-case air flow as it seems my numbers are high-ish at stock settings. Only thing OC'd is I have my XMP profile enabled at 3200mhz.
Idle, this thing seems pretty cool in the 27-32C range and nearly silent.
10 minutes of AIDA64 peaks the temps at 66C under stock configuration.
Pretty sure my last OC config had AIDA64 peaking in the 75-85C range, honestly don't remember, and I failed to grab a screenshot (this may have also had an AVX offset of 2).
Prime95 (without an AVX offset) had me approaching 90C on my 5Ghz OC configuration.
After seeing 90C, I've been reluctant to try Prime95 again.
Obviously since OC numbers will vary depending on the configuration used, I'm trying to compare baseline stock numbers.
I'm hoping its something simple like needing another intake fan, or maybe re-installing the cooler with new thermal paste, and not just reaching the limit of my cooler.
