bob1631483C isn't bad..The TjMax temp is 100C, that's when the cores start throttling down frequency/voltage to keep their temps in check providing that Thermal Control hasn't been disabled (enabled is default) in the BIOS. You might get the temp down by lowering the Vcore, or changing the Load-Line Calibration (LLC) so that the Vcore doesn't increase so much under load..What is the Vcore under load/stress, that's what's most important?..Mine needs 1.390/1.392 for 5.2GHz and cores temps are less than 70C, but it's delidded and with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut (liquid metal TIM). You can use (I do) Intel Burn Test or the Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool for quick load/stress testing.

Ghost13it failed ..... so had to drop back down to 4.9ghz. volts was in the 1.68 on gpu-z . when i drop the voltage down to that it kept crashing .. temps was in the mid 80s. last i seen ... I know for sure i need a 360mm rad, this 240mm is just not cutting the grade i think .. or i need another 240mm rad to help keep the water cooler .. but with the case i have, putting another rad in the top is a no go . so a bigger rad is what i need. sucks, this case is like that, damn good case ..
spit051261It's also down to silicon lottery .I actually set the voltage to 1.435 and 5.6 plus 4.7 cache which gave the fastest speed. I can't get it to 5.7 no matter how hard I try .
