    Dear @CPotter , please fix the post for your loyal night theme users. And while you're at it, make sure to talk to Linus to put a rule in place so that all members on LTT are forced to use night theme, as to prevent this from happening ever again.

    4790k OC is at 100 degrees!!

    Reminder that AVX-512 is (supposedly) coming with Cannon/Coffee. Guess I'll sell my oven and use one of those processors instead...

    It is not an error, it's just that AIDA is a potato test while P95 is designed to squeeze as much performance as possible out of the CPU, taking advantage of features other programs don't use.

    What was your config again? I think I've missed it...

    It's a Hyper 212-esque type cooler... c`mon, you can't expect too much out of it. People overhype the power of those air towers.

    Let's see... weak cooler, high voltage, intensive test.. yeah, 100C seems just about right. Assuming it is in fact running at 1.3v (which might not be true, seeing as "this is what I told it to run at" is just plain wrong), lower your voltage down. Try 1.2v (or lower, actually), should be much more manageable.
  7. If Q-Tips aren't doing it, toothpicks are worth a shot. Just don't apply too much pressure.
  8. I'd look at either removing the overclock, increasing fan speeds to the max, leaving the side panel open, or a combination of those 3. 86C is not really all that confortable.
  9. You can still use dual channel just fine, you just have to put both 4 gb sticks in one channel and the 8 one in the other. Wrong. I'm on tablet right now and cant really get things easoly, but look for intel's guideLines on dual channel operation and you'll see that, in fact, 3 sticks can do dual channel, if the conditions are right.

    ASUS Z-170a Overclocking

    High load causes voltage to droops, there's just no way around it (can't mess with physics). If you were to put a single voltage and just provide that, it would droop. So to try and compensate for that drop and achieve the actual specified manual voltage, LLC quicks in and add some extra on top of it, so that it droops from extra to actual input when load is high. Supposedly, Auto LLC would just pick the perfect level, but that doesn't really happen in practice. And that's where the user comes in: through trial, error, and human observation, you can pick the appropriate level for your setup so that load voltage matches whatever you want.

    ASUS Z-170a Overclocking

    Normal behaviour, that's how electronics work. http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1151/Z170-A/E10611_Z170-A_UM_V2_WEB.pdf?_ga=2.92118170.1870799286.1495624592-1420393963.1487242403 Page 2-25

    Overclocked CPU temps question

    Probably a 7700k, as that's the only unlocked Kaby Sku (that makes sense).

    Overclocked CPU temps question

    Useless info, idle is irrelevant outside of 70+ (in which case, it means bad cooler mount). Useless again, without any context on cooler, voltage and clocks. Temps are within a very confortable range, however.

    i7 7700k Overclock

    It's not so much "sillicon lottery" as it is "people don't really stress their stuff, so they get higher values than they should".

    Which CPU

    Yea, typo.
