I guess it depends on which one you use, does AS have a i7 guide ?

A horizontal line works best at about 2-3mm thick as far as AS5 is concerned anyway.

4GHz Stable 21 x 191 Turbo Mode enabled, HT enabled 1.36v in bios, temps never went above 81c on a TRUE 120 Black.




Here is a little test I did with the QPI and multi of 21 and 20 with Vantage.

20 x 200

19 x191

From what I've seen that's pretty much the norm on air..... its hot here in CA also.

EDIT: Temps at 80c are always ruining LinX, Prime95 and OCCT the temps are mostly 70c to mid 70s

From what i could see here Turbo should be disabled cause you're already overclocking CPU. It can only create problem.

I disagree, In my case I have less issues with it on, in fact I can use less vcore and achieve a 100% stable OC.

I did a burn in for 48 hrs at stock just to be safe this time, and just this morning have started playing with it. I really haven't pushed it very far, but the temps are great with my xig.

I gotta tighten the timings up, and I will try for 3.8, and 4mhz. Turbo mode is disabled.

Absolutaly, i'm the exact same. Need way less Vcore with turbo for the same clocks with no turbo.

There are very few apps that use 4 cores, let alone 8. So I leave HT off and like you need less volts.
