  1. So i found this setting in my uefi bios called CPU Power Enhancement, which was ENABLED BY DEFAULT. Here is the test with this turned off: Before: After 1 Min: After 3 Min: Completed: The temps are way better but is this setting the same as Multi-Core-Enhancement?
  2. Temps have always been high, a lot of others using this cpu have high temps aswell This is the case: https://www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=669
  3. Here are results: Before - 1 Minute into test 3 Minutes into test Completed 2 Minutes AFTER
  4. Ok so i decided to take everything out of my pc (ram, gpu, cpu, cooler), then i wiped thermal paste off and put new arctic silver 5 on and put everything back in making sure my cooler was making contact properly. I then ran the prime95 benchmark without XTU tweaks and took screenshots before, through out and after. Here are results: (ALL HAVE TIME IN BOTTOM RIGHT) - BEFORE -DURING -DURING -DURING - AFTER
  5. I have only tweaked in XTU and only the voltage offset, but those images are labelled above. Look for Default voltage image temps. I have an i7 8700 which is locked
  6. I was asking about under volting before and posted all that info, ill link it. Look at bottom of that, there is default stress test (Prime95 Benchmark test) images.
  7. The Deepcool ASSASSIN III has 7 heat pipes compared to the NH-D15's 6
  8. When my CPU is at max load it under clocks less than base... Also i don't want it to be at 90 Degrees playing games.
  9. I want to upgrade to NH-D15 cooler and the website says it will hang over my first PCIe lane, will my second PCIe lane be as good? It says the second PCIe lane is "x16 PCH".

  10. What i want to know: Should i keep -0.225v offset if my pc has crashed while being idle (It crashed while i was afk after i turned it on and logged into windows after about 30 minutes). Are my under volts good? What are better ideas for lower temps while under load? Can i max a temperature in Intel XTU like i can for my gpu in MSI afterburner? Hardest game on cpu/gpu i play is Escape From Tarkov i would think. Specs: Processor: Intel Core i7 8700 Hex Core LGA 1151-2 3.20 GHz CPU Processor Cooler: GAMMAXX 400 blue RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 4x4GB 2133MHz MotherBoard: ASUS ROG STRIX B360-G GAMING LGA 1151-2 mATX Motherboard GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Power Supply: Be Quiet! Pure Power 10 500W Power Supply I have recently used prime95 and noticed my cpu thermal throttling then under clocking to less than base speeds. I will remove my voltage under volt and run prime95 (Benchmark test with default settings) now and show results. Test: BenchMarkVoltageDefault: yes-no range thermal throttling but not changing core freq or cache freq. Test: BenchMarkVoltageUNDERVOLTED: (-0.225v offset) Never Thermal throttled and stayed at 80 degrees. max 85 degrees (Celsius). Should -0.225v offset be good? It has crashed once at this voltage under volt while not doing anything but background processes. Images: 1: Benchmark settings. 2: BenchmarkVoltageDefault 3: BenchmarkVoltageUndervolted 4: CoreTemp Idle Voltage Undervolted 5: CoreTemp Idle Voltage Default 1: 2: 3: 4: 5:
  11. Also, I have driver booster I think it's called, it installed a driver for the m.2 before I rebooted and got stuck.
