i7 870 (2.93ghz)
cooler master hyper 212 plus
asus p7p55d-e deluxe
2x4gb corsair dominator 1333
xfx 750w extreme black edition
My temperatures @ stock:
about 35Âº- 40Âº idle
max 70Âº 100%
Thing is, I have tried overclocking all the way from 4.1ghz to 3.5ghz and even at 3.5ghz my temperatures go all the way up to 95ÂºC more or less while running prime 95.
I have tried lowering the voltage, did not help.
I ran the auto overclock function on my board, it got a stable 3.89ghz but the temperatures still went all the way up to 95ÂºC more or less.
any ideas? is the hyper 212 just not good enough for overclocking? (even just 0.5ghz)?
