Trying to avoid high rpms as this is my silent build.

What annoys me for this specific CPU of mine is cores 2,3 run much hotter then 1 and 4. No matter how much i reseat CPU cooler its always the same both under idle and load. Neither seem to be convex or concave , maybe 2,3 are just worse

Some guys at other forum getting these to 5ghz or over also on air cooling
You could try lapping the heatsink.
