well initially my bios voltage was set to auto and 100x45 which ran blend on prime95 for 15 minutes or so with a max temp of 65 on all cores. didn't fool with the voltage last night.
today, changed my Vcore to fixed at 1.2 with 100x45. booted but blue screened with errors almost immediately with prime.
next, went ahead and took vcore up to 1.25 an 100x45. Been running prime for almost a half hour already without problems. Coretemp is showing my VID as 1.231-1.236 though. not sure what thats about. Here are my temps at intervals so far.
C0 average 54 max 60
C1 avg 61 max 67
C2 avg 62 max 66
C3 avg 62 max 65
20 min(new set of self tests on prime)
C0 avg 63 max 65
C1 avg 69 max 74
C2 avg 70 max 73
C3 avg 70 max 71
30 min(another new set of self tests)
C0 avg 57 max 59
C1 avg 60 max 63
C2 avg 60 max 64
C3 avg 60 max 64
update: at one hour and temps have just cycled back and forth between those sets of value previously listed. max temps have not changed.
as I said before, the on board utility had me at about 4.7ghz. With the bios autoregulating the voltage my temps were lower at the same clock. I am thinking at 1.25v I could squeeze some more multiplier out of it. Will let it run for another couple hours during MNF and see what happens.
